I wonder what it is like
to be on the other side
of the success viewpoint.

To be in front of the crowd
move them
with your words
or your beats.

The trendsetter
redefining style
forever and ever.

Impacting lives.

Improving others'
while still waking
feeling like a zombie
in a dream
that never seems
to be shaken.

This dusty keyboard
is my audience
though the letters
are spotless
fading even
as the strokes
get me closer
to one fame
or another
whichever I make

Fame seems to be like being rich, it is all a matter of degree unless you are the richest or the most famous. And then again, how do really measure these things and what does it cost be have either?
