Dreaming of Acting

“All the world's a stage,
And all the men and women merely players:
They have their exits and their entrances;
And one man in his time plays many parts”
- William Shakespeare

From the moment we open our eyes the spotlight is on us
Blind by the brightness it’s easy to get lost on the stage of life

It is a journey from Act 1 to Act 2, from life to death
Meeting enemies and friends alike as the show of life goes on
Starving, trying to survive, education sucking up all savings
Sacrificing for the love of art
Dancing and Singing in the spotlight till our time is up
When the curtain closes a smile spreads across my face as
I look back on my performance of life
