Do not let time

go

because five years from now you never

know

you may be replaced as the star of the

show

what you still think sells will actually

blow.

You think you have it all while your back is

turned

behind the scene you are about to get

burned

by new eyes ablaze with all they have

learned

passing judgment on you that your court has

adjourned.

When you least

expect it

and cannot

detect it

like a big

surprise

right before your

eyes

like you biggest

fear

all will

disappear

like a bad

romance

with no

advance

your ratings will

sink

your reputation will

stink.

UNLESS

you keep reinventing

yourself

keep climbing back

upon the high shelf.

Let them talk

all their smack

while they wish they were

YOU

behind your back.

~Miguel
