What do we hear By Sarah Bigham Opening acts often bring me to tears Seeing the pure want on young faces Dreaming of headlining after so much hustling Hope is on that stage for all to see Just this side of desperation Yet over the fence of fear I love to see these dreams Etched on the unlined faces before me I see them And I see how they are formed And I see how they are fated And I see how they are rated, posed, and marketed The young man wears a Worn t-shirt Ripped jeans Broken-in boots and a Backwards ball cap that Hides his eyes while he is Judged on sound

The young woman wears Thick makeup and teased hair with Heels so high the fall will be long and Glittering red sequins on a Tight dress with a barely-there skirt Fake gems projecting her true light while she is Judged on so many things other than talent 10
