Background CharacterI'm a background character.
I wear an invisibility cloak.
I don't make an impact on this script.
I'm easily jealous. I'm pathetic compared to the other actors.
What could I do right?
I always mess up my acting and my lines.
Everyone knows this.
Nobody needs me in their script. I'm the background character.
They're all major characters, with their supporting side character(s).
They can turn to their side character(s) for help. for love. for support. for everything. They can trust them. They can talk to them easily.
In groups of fours or threes, They set off with their side characters to enjoy themselves and laugh.
They split into twos. Never into ones.
But I'm not a side character. I'm a background character.
So I'll just stand in the back and watch, donning my invisibility cloak with a sad smile, as I watch you perform your script with your Side Characters.
I'll never get the role as Side Character.
Such is the life as a Background Character.
