    mirror mirror, on the wall
    who's to blame for my downfall
    in my reflection, what do you see
    is it your suggestion, the blames on me
    i had dreams to one day be a star
    and i thought my talent would take me far
    but as doors constantly slam in my face
    i have slowly started losing faith
    and as failure weakens my spirit with shame
    i have started to drink to numb the pain...

    mirror mirror, on the wall
    it's been another month of casting calls
    and even though i have tried so hard
    i still have yet to land a job
    i've heard every excuse that's in the book
    but i know it all boils down to my look
    and the frustration i'm going thru has been so tough
    that lately alcohol hasn't been enough
    so to ease the pain and get me by
    i have started smoking mirajuana to get me high...

    mirror mirror, on the wall
    another month has past and still no call
    i wish somehow i could get a sign
    that would show me if i'm just wasting time
    chasing my dreams of being a star
    but i have yet to land a job thus far
    day after day, and month after month
    i audition but have not been casted once
    and the pain of failure now cuts so deep
    that i often cry myself to sleep
    so the alcohol and weed that once helped me to cope
    now does nothing so i've turned to dope...

    mirror mirror, on the wall
    i now realize there's no hope at all
    of reaching my dreams to one day act
    and i've lost everything in pursuit of that
    and now my darkest secrets i must admit
    to make ends meet i've started turning tricks
    who would have believed that my life could become so tragic
    or that i would one day sell my body to support a drug habit
    end up living on the streets and not bathing for days
    and just last week, i was diagnosed with AIDS
    i know this sounds like some kind of Hollywood script
    but the real road to stardom, isn't always a fairy tale trip...

      I liked your poem very much. The progression of the individual from a goal oriented person to hopelessness is profound.

      Very true. In fact that's the most common story that takes birth on the way to stardom and dies somewhere in between.

      From the start to end your words held me with their flow.

      Keep writing smile
