Rehearsal - Poem by Della Perry

It's okay, I can screw up, didn't you know son,
This is just a rehearsal, I can make mistakes
And cock up, cause next time I'm reborn
I'll have learnt from them
A lovely life will then be had.
So, don't worry, smile son,
Life is a rehearsal
For the big finale.
I will be the leading lady
You can be the leading man.
The opening night could be a sell out!

    been here (the poem) , done this (commenting) .

    i still like it and read it at least twice this time, to find the message more than i think i did last time.

    but are 'we' talking about reincarnation to another body after death and a new life, OR...............?

    to MyPoemList and, if you say yes, to a showcase. hey, i just remembered: i can borrow from you as i wish, right? i wish! i'll try to remember to use this in January's Section A [not ready yet].


    have a good new year, Della. bri ;)

    cock up - means mess up, make mistakes, yeah a bit of black country again bri xxx it is a poem about how parents can make mistakes, talking to your kids when they make mistakes, but how you learn from them and try to move on in life anyway. x (Report) Reply
