The “I”s Have It

124842-black-cat

 I yearned to be a star

I knew I would go far

It was all about me,

myself and my I

but they all knew

my truths were askew

they were too wise

to my lying eyes

    Ego can be a great deceiver.

    Ego, a curse but it does make good poetry Eugenia. The words and picture go together perfectly.

    Jumped over from the Senior Salon

    Many of my friends and I went through a period where we wanted the life of a star – most actors do, but not all of us are egomaniacs. Some just like the shine of the spotlight and the love of the stage (and if you’re not what they call “a name,” especially for women as they grow older, it becomes increasingly difficult to get cast at all and you barely eke out a living!) Feast or famine for most in the biz, not a lot in between – at least not in America anyway. Nobody aspires to the life of a starving artist.

    Still, you make a good point about ego – at least the unhealthy kind. We all need SOME – only we call it self-esteem.

      Yes, showbiz can be extremely challenging when one gets older. Surgeries to keep that youthful appearance are on the increase. It’s tough on the ego when you are in the limelight. Thank you for commenting.

        You’re welcome. The grumbling I hear most often is no longer being able to dash out to the store unless they are camera-ready because of the !$^& tabloid photographers – especially now with all the nastiness on the ‘net.

    A very wise poem Eugenia.

    A poem that proves the adage that a life that is not examined is very shallow. The Ephron quote is the perfect follow up.
