(Timeless / Right Now, Right Here)

Are You An Actor Or An Observer?


In this always-tragic comedy or divine drama,
are you on the stage a little kid or a big mama?

Do you feel the pain, the juice the pull?
If so my friend, enjoy your roll.

Fine it is that you are right there,
Something at which myself and others can stare.

I prefer to watch the show, all the anger all the scorn,
I'd prefer to sit here and watch, with buttery popcorn.

I will not be pulled in, caught and thrown on stage,
I will run, hide, and not get near your cage!

Free I am to observe and BE,
not an employee of The Company.

    Agree with you whole heartedly! Observing is so much better to me also.
    You don't have to be pulled into the drama of life. Just write about it afterwards.
    Another great poem, you are on a roll my friend. RoseAnn (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
