i’m trying hard not to be famous

i’m trying hard not to be famous
it’s more difficult than it looks
to duck my fifteen minutes
and just sit with my books

i’m trying hard not to be famous
and avoid the camera glare
to just take a simple walk
and have no one stare

i’m trying hard not to be famous
in humility i will kneel
without my own talk show
i will struggle to be real
