Lost in translation

I wrote this one last night. Got most of what I wanted out, but still feels kinda incomplete. Oh well...

It was my day to shine
But I was outshone.
My day to be the best
But someone was just better.

I hoped for some assurance
That I mattered.
That I had made a difference.

I hoped for some recognition,
Maybe someone who had realised
That I wasn't the black spot in the background,
But the colour that made the picture.

I hoped to be the notes
that held the symphony together.
Instead,
All I became was a single,
lilting tune,
Lost in the medley.

I wanted to be noticed,
Needed someone to acknowledge
My presence,
But I guess I just faded away,
Got lost
in translation..............
