Ben for poem

Your journey has been an exciting one; starting almost two years ago

On those July and August evenings, we’d be fixated watching the show

All the years of preparation were about to become worth while

As you jumped onto our televisions, confidently showcasing your style

Each week on ‘Superstar’ you fought for your place and won the epic part

The high acclaimed role of Jesus, but this achievement was only the start;

Of a career based in vast arenas, and the USA was announced today

Your vocals leave audiences stunned, raw emotion blows them away.

Get ready to wow America, with your stunning stage presence and aura

Jesus is ready to rise again! America, Ben Forster is coming for ya!

    1. Thank you so much!
      I actually wrote it for @thebenforster who is going to be touring the USA with “Jesus Christ Superstar” he retweeted it for me.

  1. I’m really impressed 🙂 brief but very well done, it speaks much about the writer. my learning point here is, a post doesn’t have to be so long making it a chore to read

    1. Thank you! I’m so glad that you liked it! It’s actually a poem about Ben Forster (@thebenforster) who is currently playing the role of Jesus Christ in the Jesus Christ Superstar Arena tour. He’s exceptionally talented! So far they’ve toured Australia and the UK (x2) They’re in the States this summer! 🙂
