My poem about my fellow actors. :)




We are a subculture.

We are the hands of those before us and those still to come.

We forever have the eyes of children for we see the imagined take shape before us.

We imitate the voices of many generations and fill the spirit of those words with a fervent passion.

We are the sinners, the lovers, the losers and the kings.

We are the beast and the goddess.

We each, in our time, experience thousands of facets of our own selves.

We find beauty in the truth of a moment.

We live between four walls, yet never seem to be caged.

Forever changing, illusion upon illusion.

We each wear a separate face behind the mask.

You may know this face, but when the veil is parted, that face is absorbed.

We find our identity in difference.

We are real, but at the same time all in your head, your heart, your being.

Our reality is different from your reality.

For a brief time we liberate you from the snares of the rat race.

You feel us because we do not serve you.

We serve the emotions.

We serve the art.

We grow together and feed from each other.

We even borrow from you - a walk, a laugh, a gesture.

We are each an intricate part of the larger whole - a larger truth.

We are the reflections of humanity.

We are a subculture.

This is superb.
You've captured the actor perfectly, and the picture is worth a thousand words.
