I am beginning to work.
I’ve planned my performance alone.
I have escaped your shadow.
The lights shine on me alone now.
I step into the dark tent quietly.
I am stronger when the crowd cheers.
I am just as good without you.
My past life with you is fading.
The lights went up with a flash.
I step into the ring for my act.
There are cheers from all sides.
Their love warms my heart once again.
