you were chosen long before you took a breath
a life destined for glory and pain
what would you have done if you were given a choice
who would you be if not for this identity
if what is real is the here and now
would you still wish for another time

who are you when people close their eyes
who are you after the applause has run out

your life is a given, a title for a name
your truth is for anyone to shape
if you were the same as the next person
would you still walk in that imaginary line

where will you go if you are on your own
where will you go after they close the door
