Supporting Cast

This one needs a lot of work. But I wanted to post it just in case the editing doesn’t happen soon.

The squeaky wheel gets the grease.
The star gets the spotlight.
The boss gets the credit.
The winner gets the medal and the headline.

Those who plug along
Do their job
Day in, day out,
Get a paycheck, maybe,
And maybe the glory of knowing
What they have accomplished.

In the shadows,
All that matters is
How you feel about yourself
Not accolades from others.

Forget the squeaky wheel,
The star,
The boss,
The winner.
Most of us are the supporting cast,
And without us,
No one shines.
