The Play of Life

Shutters open wide and you see yourself on stage

With characters building up and the story finding its  base.

 

Halfway through the play, you forget the story and start creating your own

Then to get back to the original you endlessly moan.

 

The spotlight that was on you, now falls on someone else

But you’ll have to stay in the dark, unless & until the director tells.

 

Looking at the props, you are like stuck in lights at amber

‘Surrender’ he says from offstage, and then ‘you shall remember’.

 

The light falls back on you to resume the play as it is written down

But in the eyes of the audience, you may still be a little clown.

 

Yet some sit for long and others leave the house

All in all it doesn’t matter, as in the end

The curtain falls.
