A Series

I live within a series
Day in and day out
I am restless
Believing I belong here
And wanting to stay
I am tired
Always watching
Is it my turn
To be the show runner
Can I be
The main character
Am I asking too much
I want to be seen
As more than a side kick
Laughing along
In a journey not mine
I must be bitter
I'm near the spotlight
And I want it on me
Is it so wrong
For me to want more
Then to go along
Laugh and smile
In a series for another

Being in the shadow of another and thinking of it in terms of a movie or book series, seeing one's self as just a replaceable side character in another's world.
