Playacting Life


On the stone platform

In the center of the stage

Under a spotlight

Preforming an act

In the play of life

Saying all the lines perfectly

Not missing a single one

Just doing everything as it is expected

If you step over the line

It will be known

After all

This play has been seen before


While going through the motions


What would happen

If improv was used

If the script was left



Under the spotlight



Not acting

But improv

The script of how things should go

As it is thought by the actor



Watching the play

Peers and parents alike

Whisper the lines

Trying to get you back on track

Into your stereotype of a life


Waving them off

Telling them

It is your play

It is your life
