All the Stage is a World

July 10, 2005

4/1985

When a role reaches undesired perfection,
and false emotions play real feelings,
and lights and crowd fade to blank walls
then acting is gone, and life is a performance.

When what is real becomes an act,
and when life seems to lose its reality
and all the stage seems just a world,
then life is gone, and what’s real is lost.
