An Actor But Out Of The Drama - Poem by Udaya R. Tennakoon

At a certain point
He happened to be a pretender
Deviating the track he came
Like an iguana
Way of flowing the life
Broke and changed

Language of words
Feelings and expressions
Thoughts and strategies
Smiles and laughs
Became an artificial drama of an actor
Does his role very latently

Lie being the reality
Life becomes the reality of lie
From then on
Vanished the soul and
Reborn a different mind

Because of that
Life being shaped
Before the mirror
He is same but different in soul

    Actor...to act out...
    To act out one must have a part. A part in a play, movie, life.
    We all are actors... we all have a role to play.
    It only becomes lies when you do not live up to the part. (Report) Reply

    change is a part of life.
    change for good cause.
    try to speak truth.
    you will be definitely caught lie of others. (Report) Reply
