Star of the Show

Narrate you own life's story
and tell you own life's tale
Don't leave it up for grabs
or even up for sale!

Write down your own life's story
before the others do
Wading through words and phrases
that aren't remotely true...

Plan out your own life's story
before it's done for you-
and you're stuck acting out a life
that you despise and rue.

Plot out your own life's story
or at least, Act Two (or Three)
Rewrite your script, if needed
to set your spirit free!

Dress yourself with color
costume yourself with care
Create the character you want to be
and strut with catwalk flair!

Design and build your life's stage
or at least, rearrange the props
and play your role with moxie
not caring if it flops...

Create your own life's story
as producer, director, star-
and then kick back & enjoy the show
no matter how bizarre!

Be your own show's critic
ignoring all other reviews
Lavish your life with praise
acknowledging cast and crew.

Become your very own fan club
awaiting each scene of your day
Taking joy in each thoughtful detail
of your glorious, quirky play!

Hey, S.S., I started highlighting my favorite stanzas, and the entire poem was highlighted, so it is a FAV for me. This is how I want every single person I meet to feel! I am glad you do!

Too cool, had to "Fav"; I love it, especially, "Dress yourself with color costume yourself with care Create the character you want to be and strut with catwalk flair!"

If it sounds that AWESOME, it must not be my guitar strumming (my musical attempts are atrocious)! Thank you, my friend! ;)
