I will step onto that stage and give a grand performance

I have to get up


Even though all I want, is to stay under the covers

I will dance across the stage in my finest dress and heels

To do this, I have no motivation for it


I have to scrape out the motivation with a knife


I will smile my brightest smile , despite all

I will bear the twists and turns of the knife


And the terrible pain of those wounds

I will finish to thunderous applause and cheers


They love me

And I will keep going


Putting a foot in front of the other
