Poem About The Routine Of Life

This poem was inspired through a little path of self discovery that I had recently. It got me thinking of how people wear this mask around all the time, of how people go along with the show, and how some people believe the "performance" all together.

Life Is But A Performance

default ©

Published: February 2014

An actor up above on a stage,
Reciting lines from a script that he has memorized 100 times over.
He goes along with the show,
Executing his parts perfectly,
Knowing just when to jump in.
The crowd goes wild.
They applaud,
They scream,
They loved absolutely everything about his performance.
And you would too if this poem wasn't about you.
Yes, I'm taking about you.
The one reading this poem right now.
You are the actor,
The one who wears the mask.
Your script is the lines that you ingrain in your mind.
You know, phrases like "I'm fine."
You put on a performance on this stage called life.
And your fellow cast mates?
Well, they're your friends, family, co-workers, and acquaintances.
Face it, life is like a performance,
And you are just one of the actors.
Play your part well.

They say life is like a mirror, when it is broken we can't go back and arrange it into pieces.

But I say that life is not a mirror. Because when we are ill and broken we can go back to God and start a new chapter of our existence with God.
