You think you're the star,
Flying way up high.
Nothing can touch you.
You own the sky.

Your colors are bright,
no one shines brighter.
You're number one....
till you go a bit higher.

Farther in the sky,
there are stars that shine true,
and you cannot compare.
You're just little old you.

Those stars are huge.
You'll never compare.
Don't even try.
Don't even dare.

You're small and weak.
They're big and strong.
Your shine is meek,
and theirs is long.

So just give up.
There's nothing to do.
You're not good enough,
yes, it's true.

Wait, no.
It's not true at all.
Those stars may be big,
but keep standing tall.

You're a star too,
no matter the size.
Don't believe the insults.
Don't believe the lies.

Yes your shine is unique,
and done your own special way,
and that's all that really matters
at the end of the day.

So shine your best little star,
and know this to be true.
You may not be perfect,
but you're perfectly you.
Alright, this one is for :iconjellybeanseverywhere: who gave me a prompt saying; write about a person who realized that they're not the main character (or brightest star) in their own life. So I loved the idea and I decided to put my own little spin on it, so that instead of sounding like it was a bad thing, it was a good thing, because I wanted to get the message across that, you know, not everyone can be the lead roll, some people are just co-stars, or even background, but every role is important. Every role is special, and without them, the show couldn't go on. Love you guys!
