Green Room Psycho

a poem by

Jayati

Nervous newcomers wait for rates
For the “Eurovision Song Contest”
Points to ponder failure, success
To the audience
Today they gave their best.
Backstage in the green room
The atmosphere is tense.
Music minded teenyboppers
Impatience written large
Wait for their results.
Rise and fall of hopes,
Lightning strike
Stab in chest.
The winner takes it all
Again unlucky, feeling small
The triumphant,
On the stage stay tall.
Losers hold
Back tears, it is just another fall.
Determination and will, stretch miles
The powers of endurance pay with smiles.
Music is the key not mere battles, win defeat.
