Take One

by Mr. A (age 17)

See me on screen looking
through the camera
seeing people like Mom
and Grandma. I don't
care when I see my
friends. I know the
movie will come
to an end. Ready for
a close-up. Ready
for an action scene.
Every day it's all the
same to me as the
credits roll. The fans start
to scream, "We want more!"
They like the part when
I didn't lose hope and
become a dope. And
that's when my life
became.

Dedicated to my mom
