Lower the Lights

Regina Puckett

What was any of it for

The blood, sweat and tears

The pushed down doors

The hope, pain and fears

Why bother if all for naught

Landing on my ass every time

Was I fool for taking a shot

Is trying too hard a crime

I guess I’ll never know

If it all worked out or not

But at least I put on a show

I came, I saw, and I sought

Close the curtain

And lower the lights

Nothing is ever certain

But at least I saw the sights
