Just a Tree

Just background noise

an extra with no lines.

Passing by in the scenery, silently

The main characters will never interact with me.

I played the tree in our pre-k production.

Now I’m all grown and I’m still nothing

Passed for the chance for Romeo

In my life I don’t even play the lead role

No, not even the hero of my own story.

I have a few lines, but they're quickly forgotten.

When the audience is watching

they're eyes are on the main cast,

not the Notre Dame Hunchback
