Time To Act

I never want to leave my bed,

Why do I have to face the outside world again?

As soon as I get up,

It’s time to act.

The stage lights shine bright,

But stage make-up covers my true appearance.

The costume helps me slip into the correct character,

Who am I playing today?

I know I’m not the only one,

Who is playing pretend 24/7.

Everyone else is just like me,

Everyday running through their lines,

Thinking of what’s coming next

And what the suitable reaction will be.

We’re all professional actors,

The world is our stage.

The only thing that’s missing

Is our curtain call,

Signalling the end of our show.

We all just want it to end,

And go back into the green room for celebration.

We want to get away from the lights and waiting audience,

Whom we must always please.
