Shining Example

You were the shining example
The one without flaw
They watched you cavort there
Spectating in awe
They said you held kingdoms
In the palm of your hand
Your style was so effortless
And nothing was planned

When you fell from your pedestal
The whole world was stunned
All the artistry birthed there
All the fashions begun
Fell swift to your infamy
How were we so blind?
Such a shining example
With such darkness behind.

  1. You describe so well the successes and failures of celebrity life. We are not innocent. We are accomplices: our adulation their pedestal.
