Confidently Needy – (Its a Celebrity’s Show)

image

I have met a few
Perhaps so have you
It’s a clever disguise
Oh so alluring
We so want to be like ‘them’
We yearn for an express ticket
A fast train straight to stardom
Can’t you see how good they look
But you can’t always tell
A book by just its cover
Glossy & Classy,
Intriguingly Snazzy
But I tell you what
Its often plain grey inside
Seen from afar, so colour – full
It’s everything you ever dreamed
But up close and personal
You’ll see you’ve been tricked
The trendy confident rap
Is simply a call to action
A rehearsed drama
To get your attention
It’s the glint in your eye
The adoring roar of your voice
The sunshine behind your eyes
Tells them you are so alive
Your pure innocent delightful self
Untouched by all the pretence
They remember how it used to be
They want some of that again
They crave your adoration
If only for a second
It makes them feel validated
For all the choices made
Don’t sell your very soul
For an airbrushed job
That Famous Celebrity status
But are they really worth celebrating?
You decide, all by your intelligent self
Is what you see, what you really get?
You’d better learn the art
‘Cos if you can’t see beyond
The glossy cover & dream lifestyle
If you can’t see the pain behind the smile
You will be pulled in, trapped & enslaved
By their well practised poses
Designed to capture, to captivate, to drain
Your natural, unfeigned, untarnished energy
Much of theirs got jaded long ago
They are on a hunt
For vulnerable prey
They have to make it all Worthwhile
So so needy
But you’d never guess
‘Confidently’ needy
That’s what they really are
They come in many shapes
Big Preachers, Famous Actors & the like
Live shows that never close even when at home
Always on stage even if dying inside
A mismatch of the cover and the pages
So don’t be dazzled by their dazzlers
You are the real thing
If your cover matches your rhyme
Don’t swap your ‘plain’ for their ‘cool’
Just be you, much better to be you
Enjoy the simplicity of being you
Who needs dazzlers covering emptiness
So just be you
Don’t buy the lie
Disguise is unnecessary
Life is worth more than that
Live fully intact, Body, Soul & Spirit
When Pretence finally unravels
It ain’t a pretty sight at all
No need for you to be counterfeit
Living ‘confidently’needy
Pretending to be the ‘bomb’
If you stay true to you
You’ll easily see
You are better off
Being naturally confident
Untainted by deceitful glory

  1. Oh yes, I am definately not a fan of these new shows. I think that’s why I am watching more of the classic movies of late. I never thought I’d see the day of my watching black and white movies, and enjoying them – but here it is.
