You scream as it starts
Dimly aware of the blood and pain
You begin to take it all in
And in the moving picture, play your part
It’s a mega production
With so many performers
All in scenes with each other
You too are part of the action
Like it, there isn't another show
It’s so real and new, at times feels like Deja Vu
Thank your parents for introducing you
How will your story go?
Actors have a say
But your prior roles may influence your character
Mostly, it’s up to the big-time director
Maybe you should pray?
Will your part get you attention?
Make you a success?
Make you famous?
Give you satisfaction?
Your role is ephemeral
And the movie merely a play of light
You can only try and get it right
Your spirit is eternal
Who really is the creator?
Making you happy and sad
Taking you through good and bad
In a way, aren’t you the audience, actor, director?
