to see and to be seen
is what everyone wants-

perhaps that's why
you did what you did,
i guess

a hit, a crash, an attempt
a cry for help that received

all you wanted was life
didn't you know that
beggars can't be choosers?

I hope D-list celebrities read this one day, and anyone who's a fame-whore. As soon as I read the first line, I was repeating AMEN, AMEN, and AMEN!

  I really like the structure of this, especially how it changes at the last line. You were able to make such a short poem very powerful. The first stanza was a really interesting way to begin it, and I thought it was quite successful in establishing an idea. Plus, the title is just perfect. Great work!
