All The World's A Stage

'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'.('As You Like It', Act 2 Scene 7, 139 – 143)


In the course of a day,
There's many parts we play.
And the stage is constantly changing.
From the first sign of waking,
While the morning light's breaking,
Our day ahead is a series of scenes.
Let's make each scene gripping,
Not winding and slipping
To the new role, in a haze and a dream.
For in life's repetition,
Sometimes of our voiltion,
We blank out, drift over, daydream.
But each moment has nuance,
Each role that we play
Forms the picture of who we've become.
Let's love every moment, not glazing over,
And only hand-picking some.
When the curtain comes down at the end of each day,
Let's have made it one unique and well-performed Play.
