role of my life

I’m an actor in “Life”

Myself” is the role I’m continually playing

get into character – what would a normal person do?

watch others, mimic, steal something from a TV show

new lines don’t always play, so revert back to old material

sometimes the audience is cold, I struggle for the moments

other times I’m on a roll and the people are with me

words roll easy, actions flow, laughter erupts

I feel I am truly inhabiting the role

I’m living life but it’s nothing more than show

I’m just playing a part, this isn’t really me

I don’t know who that is

but I’m getting there

one day the character will be me and I can stop lying

to you
