Stars

i’m still waiting

for my coming-of-age

for that big break

to be the leading lady 

of my own life

like i’d always imagined

young and foolish

daring and beautiful

adjectives as foreign

as another language 

instead

i’m always deferring 

avoiding the spotlight’s glare

imposter syndrome

has made a permanent

home of me

i’m still hoping for that

breakthrough performance 

but until then

i’ll patiently

bite my tongue and

watch the other

stars shine
