The artists behind the scenes,
the backstage is our home.
We are not to be seen,
only to be alone.
We write eloquent beauties across a page
just for nobody to notice our skill.
Writing is without time or age,
rather it be kind or ill,
or upon a stage.
Playwrights, poets, novelists and undiscovered,
all remain behind the grand stage's curtain.
As we all have often wondered,
thoughts may be uncertain,
but why are we under?
Other artists get the attention, all of that loving praise,
stroked egos for colorful paintings and things.
We are the educated of the literary days,
yet no glory, no pride our art brings,
no matter what we portray.
How is our problem to be resolved, or is there a conclusion?
People forget our lives, our beauties, our cause,
and we stay and sicken in our confusion
because we get no applause.
I call for a revolution for all of us who are stranded, left unheard.
We speak of pain, life, love, happiness, good memories,
