Theatre Addict

April 15, 2008
By Ashley Cabebe, Mesa, AZ

Why does she act on stage the way she does?
What happiness could she contain from it?
She gets onstage and tries to act because,
She loves it and refuses to just quit.

She’s not sensible; she’s not thinking clear
What could she possibly think of herself?
Doesn’t she know everything she should fear?
She is not good enough to receive wealth

She does it because she loves it so much
She just can not think of being elsewhere
It‘s the only dream she lets herself clutch
The stage is the only place that she cares

The theatre is where this girl will stay
Dramatic lines is what this girl will say
