Be a Star

The essence of being a star lies in your ability to make yourself as fascinating to others as you are to yourself.

A Poem I Wrote at Age 11


Why do we call them stars

when the stars are in the sky?

Are they worthy of this name?

Not nearly, and I know why.

While the Stars only shine

when the cameras are on,

the real Stars shine all night

until the crack of dawn.

So why do we call them Stars?

Are they worthy of this name?

No, and if they are

then we are too,

for all humans are the same.

I’m writing this poem

for all the world to see,

that calling the “stars” celebrities

will be just fine with me.
