When The Curtain Drops


My Father came to visit me last night, normally this wouldn’t seem out of the ordinary, except for the fact that he has been dead for nearly twenty years. He grabbed me by the hand and lead me to a party, some face I recognized, friends and family who had recently passed on. ‘

“This, Baby Girl is the Cast Party. We all come here to unwind when the show is over, ” he said before offering me a refreshment.

I noticed a few people being taken out in handcuffs. This alarmed me, naturally I questioned my father about it.

” Well, I’ll tell you baby Girl, The Director felt they gave an awful performance, so they are being cast out. He just doesn’t see any hope for them.”

Looking around I didn’t see my Ma , by brother or my mother. I became nervous. What had become of them? Again I put my concerns forth to my father.

Sometimes The Director sees potential in people and decides to give them a repeat performance, to allow them to hone their craft. Your mother and brother are among those people they sent back to give an encore.

People like Me and Ma , the more experienced ones get to enjoy fruits of our labour. Ma is up there no in the Penthouse waiting for me.

Life is a Facade

Two fools

 

Brought together

 

By Fate

 

A chance encounter

 

Baring Souls

 

All the while

 

Hiding

 

Behind a Well crafted

 

Porcelain Mask

 

Identities Unknown

 

They choose to believe

 

The other not knowing

 

Less the mystique is lost

 

They know not

 

Themselves

 

Who they truly are

 

Life is a Facade

 

We all hide behind

 

 

 

 

 

Catching Hope


Hope
Hope (Photo credit: bitzcelt)

Inside she felt dead

Down to her last rope

Her life hanging by a thread

She forgot about Hope

Her life had become unkind

Thoughts raced endlessly

She had clearly lost her mind

Behaving quite carelessly

She began to drift away

Waiting for the sound of a creaking door

Limp arms had given way

Hope was caught before hitting the floor

Strength comes from deep within

 

Not from the outside looking in

 

Beating the odds over and over again

 

It’s not tit for tat nor sin for sin

 

 

 

You need to learn to play the game

 

Or it’s just going to stay the same

 

Walking the line between Notoriety and Fame

 

Will Only get you burned by the Flame

 

 

 

Take On the Day

 

Don’t Give it away

 

Have your say

 

Be a Shining Ray
