TITLE: Starstruck Syndrome

I guess you could say that this poem is targetting all of us who find ourselves caught up in, at times, wanting to be like those we see on the big or small screens.
Starstruck Syndrome

Look at the trends
It just never ends
The way we see famous ones
All dressed up in their sequins
We scream for a chance
To get just one second glance
We worship them as gods
As if their foot would've trod
Over golden streets
Were anxious to meet
Those who live in the hills
We would actually kill
Just to wear what they wear
Or to have the same stylish hair
Or to be in the same places
Where there would be but traces
Of their high status presence
Just a bit of their essence
Is almost enough for us
To be up to snuff
With the important things in life
I hate to be so trite
But we have so elevated
And have so highly rated
Something so shallow
The glamour we follow
It only serves to remind us
That what we have is not enough
We can never be satisfied
For the people weve glorified
Are but people with money
I mean, its just so funny
That living our own lives
Doesn't seem to satisfy
Our desires deep within
To only fit in
What would this world be?
If we could really see
That the things we should value
Would literally undue
This society weve built
Each heart would be filled
With wonder
And charm
And unaffected
By
The Starstruck Syndrome
