    Life
    A constant melodrama from the day we are born
    We’re the actor
    We’re the director
    We’re the stage crew and producer
    Doorman, usher, and ticket taker

    The world is our stage
    There are no rehearsals
    There are no intermissions
    Only right and wrong decisions

    Each day the play has several acts
    Dealing with life’s fiction
    Dealing with life’s facts

    Each day the spotlight is rearranged
    Just like life’s script
    There is always a change

    The plot continually thickens
    As other players come on stage
    Bringing their own script
    Trying to make it fit

    But nothing is like our own lives
    Nothing else is quite the same
    No other drama is unique to us
    No other rules regulate our game

    In a perfect world
    This play called life
    Would be acted out judgment free
    But like the world our play is not perfect
    Someone’s always there for acts 1, 2, and 3

    But serious actors who know who they are
    Care less what the audience thinks of their life
    They live each day
    For the challenge of their play
    Giving their best, giving their all
    And demand of themselves
    A standing ovation and curtain call

    The Poet
    The Seer
    A Master of words

    He shapes
    And he molds them
    He be workin' them verbs

    He loves and
    He teases
    He places them so

    You feel them
    They touch you
    They penetrate your Soul
