I Am an Actress
Madison, Age 11, San Antonio, TX

I wonder how hard the script will be.
I hear all the dramatic voices.
I see my colorful wardrobe.
I want someone to watch me.
I am an actress.

I pretend I learn to swish a sword.
I feel the shock of my acting pain.
I touch the cold hands of my fellow actors.
I worry I'll forget my lines.
I cry because of the death of my fake Mexican brother.
I am an actress.

I understand how the character feels.
I say the words I'm expected to.
I dream I'm a great success.
I try to do my best.
I hope this is what I'll be some day.
I am an actress.
