Just There

November 16, 2008
By Shreya Kuntawala, Tallahassee, FL

She was center stage
Spotlight gleaming
Bright and glorious
Pivoting like a carousel
The best there was

The audience loved her
Red roses and applause
She was the star
And we were just there

We were the extras
Who wasted her air
Glaring with envy
We always just stood there

We worked just as hard
But got nowhere
Always left in the dark
With not one stare

All of the practices
For the back row
While she took center stage
Without a care in the world

She would forever remain
Glued to her pedestal
For she was the star
And we were just there
