Playacting Life

Standing

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

Wondering

What would happen

If improv was used

If the script was left

.

As

Under the spotlight

Acting

Becomes

Not acting

But improv

The script of how things should go

As it is thought by the actor

You

.

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
