Before The Curtain Falls


Like the rise and fall of the curtain,
the course of our lives begins;
Like the unfolding of a script,
Just like the scenes of a play;

Like the chapters of a book,
or the pages of it;
the days of our lives unravels
as we flip through;

And before the final fall,
we must find purpose;
like a child struggles for breathe,
we must find our path;
ardent in our passion,
lost in our art;
for we must hit the rod while the iron is hot;
just before the curtain falls.

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
