A Star Is Born


A star is born, or has emerged

Slipped from a cocoon into our world

Raking in millions along with our admiration

And with them our lives are soon twirled


We set them up as something special

Their lives skyrocket them to fame

And soon whether in pictures or music

Everyone knows of their fame


But years pass by and attention is lost

We remember, but they slip away

They fade into their own special lives

And settle into living day to day


That’s not to say that their lives

Stop being in so many ways different

Nothing at all like what we do

Just an alternate rendition of rent


But they must revert to being themselves

Another person who must carry on

To live past our accolades and fame

With attributes to go beyond


No one escapes themselves with life

We all reconcile what we’ve done

Our shining moments always end

And we must settle to being just one
