5) The Show Must Go On

Beakers of wishes
on the window
as you pass by.
Glances from people
you don’t even know
but they might know you.

And it’s a crazy world
to be living,
but that’s all right
because
even when it rains,
the show must go on.

Tapes of the memories
you’ll never remember
you were so young.
Cartwheels and big deals
of the past linger
in your head.

And it’s a crazy world to be living,
but that’s alright,
because
even when it rains,
the show must go on.

Pick up the pieces
of your broken, sadly broken, heart.
Catch all the stars
in the universe
they might come in handy.

And it’s a crazy world to be living,
but that’s alright
because
even when it rains,
the show must go on.

Aw, this is well-spoken and I think it describes how life truly works. No matter what happens- it will go on! I also love the repetition you usedand the format- Well done! :P

I like it, it deep and very emotinal toward the ways the world works. I also like how you use the show must go on to reflect on that very outside the box think to do that .
