Life - Poem by Anahita Tahmasbi

Life is a film
Produced by nature
Directed by fate
And you the star
Gradually learn the script
Tragedy, comedy, horror
You learn your part
the credits roll on
And death leaves the theatre

    Well the way you express your mind is precious. Your style and the metaphor in the first line says the whole idea. You believe that we if know our roles we'll be stars. So what's the role of Fate who is the director? In contrast to your view, I guess because of the injustices in the world, we have no opportunity to be like a star, the best we can do is to be gone out of the stage and scene as soon as possible.

    great and brilliant.
    life is like a film and as short as a movie.but it may be directed by ourselves too.
