Life Under The Spotlight

Life Under The Spotlight

A Chapter by Daisie Vergara (Dhaye)

Inspired by a Korean novella I am watching


So complicated
So difficult
There should be no mistake
There should be no fault

So disgusting
So stressful
I should always smile
I should look beautiful

Life should look perfect
Though it is like a mess
Under the bright spotlight
Everyone makes a guess

Look at me in the eye
I am a celebrity
Only beautiful things
You can see them from me

I smile and laugh
I never look dry
Under the bright spotlight
I should never cry

I'm not sure what a Korean Novella is, but your poem is well done as usual.
