A beautiful face boldly stares our way,
from the other side of a giant, flat screen TV.
One minute they appear quite innocent,
but in an instant, their behavior becomes nasty.
Some choose to engage in the theatric profession,
in a play, on television or in movie production.
Others act the fool without a formal script,
forgoing the stage for society, unable to function.
Is life but a manuscript for our daily behavior,
written by an aloof grand puppet master?
Or do we choose to behave in a certain way,
bringing about random joy and occasional disaster?
What attracts us to Hollywood celebrities,
with a lifestyle of fashion, elegance, and wishes?
Is it greed, insecurity, or a need to be worshipped,
so, we may share in their life of luxury and riches?
A famous writer has so eloquently shared with us,
his enlightened opinion that, “All the world’s a stage,”
But if this statement is correct about the history of mankind,
then some of us are due Oscar’s or belong in a cage.
I would rather write my own script as I live my life,
and adjust for past insecurities and transgressions.
When my life has reached its paramount of existence,
I hope I leave behind, a few good impressions.
