My Life as a Star

By David Andre Davison

πŸŽ₯

Perhaps our life is like a stage play,

without the benefit of a script.

We make up our lines as we go along,

learning when to speak or remain tight-lipped.

πŸŽ₯

We can look to our parents as role models,

suggesting ways to face each act in life.

But there are so many twists and turns,

that don’t address every reward or strife.

πŸŽ₯

How I wish my existence was more like a movie,

with the benefit of an identifiable plot.

It might give me a purpose for trying,

finding my role in life, my unique slot.

πŸŽ₯

Another advantage of a motion picture,

is the benefit of clearing up a mistake.

I would simply turn to the director,

and as for a second chance or retake.

πŸŽ₯

But alas we are stuck with a story,

where we know not the future, the end.

We simply do the best job we can,

and try fake our way through, i.e. pretend.

πŸŽ₯

Oh the joy of the characters we meet,

through the stages of our existence,

Some of them can hurt us along the way,

while others may provide valuable assistance.

πŸŽ₯

If I could write my own script,

I think I would want to be a wizard.

Then I could reward my best friend with gold,

and turn my darkest enemy into a lizard.

πŸŽ₯

The setting would be a laboratory of sorts,

in the lower realms of a fine castle.

My potions and spells would be so powerful,

those who oppose me I could hassle.

πŸŽ₯

Back to the reality as a mere mortal man,

with challenges facing at every turn.

There is no fantasy world to turn to,

my only advantage, to practice what I learn.

πŸŽ₯

So it’s onward in my simple world,

And not do anything too rash.

I better prepare for my life as a star,

by taking out the day’s trash.
