The Actor In Me - Poem by Abdul Wahab

I am on the stage
Of my own life

No camera, no light
I painted my face

With fire and ice
Without smoke and without flame

I bake my heart
Like a bread

But on the stage
With all of my self pride

I am brave
And I keep my face bright

I tell lies after lies
But people take those as truth

To people it appears
I laugh I smile

But inside
I continuously cry

I do not love myself
Let alone others

But plead for altruism
I shout for humanism

I advice people
Though I want those most

I myself a patient
But like a doctor

give health tips around
I cheat and cheat

My soul
I never express what it meant

I am an excellent actor
I keep continue my acting

i do not know any way
how to come out breaking the stage away

    Perhaps the actor inside us perfoms again and again perfecting a truth before final curtain call. (Report) Reply
