Is really a lucky draw.
Unless you are in the rare circumstance
Of being born to famous parents.
But for the rest of us
Being famous is an act of God
There comes this really strange moment
When you first discover someone your age or younger
Who has somehow gotten famous and successful
And you ask yourself where you were
When they were busy getting famous?
Like, did you miss a meeting or something?
Its even worse when you reckon that you are
Probably more talented and hardworking than they are.
You could totally be famous.
But you’re not.
Its then that you realize
That fame and fortune does not really
Come to the most gifted and talented (or even the connected).
You don’t really find it.
It finds you.
You honestly are not responsible for that part.
Your time may (or may not) come
And you’ve gotta live with that.
Coz you’ve got to be famous for something right?
So keep doing that thing
And you may stumble on it
Or it may find you.
