The Protagonist

You don’t look for trouble. You work behind the scenes, unseen. Not everyone’s favorite, depending on who you ask. Though some say, ‘super nice’; others say, slow, aka dumb, weird, too quiet. When people talk about the road to success, you’re never on it, as far as they see. No one expects you to do well, it doesn’t even cross their mind. They step right over you or worse on you because after-all, you won’t say a word but just go on. Every day. You wake in the morning, get up and get back out there doing what is right with not one pat on the back. Silently, almost invisibly, doing unto others as you would want them to do unto you, just because. You are the hero of the story and someone is reading you.
