Life’s Play

The evening is beautiful
Peaceful
Divine
The crickets are keeping in time
To night’s steady rhythm
Nature providing the soundtrack
To every day and night
The glorious light
From a full moon
Has become a spot light
On our stage
Everything she illuminates
Shines brighter
Sparkles
And
Reveals
Her stars provide the perfect backdrop
We are all players
Acting
With our shadows
Remaining in character
Because
Like the night
It permits us to hide
Who wants to see the monster
Beauty is what’s admired
Even if it’s falsely created
People love to be fooled
They are frightened
By truth
Unwilling to venture
Afraid to seek
Remain in the mental prison
Return to the cave
Pretend you don’t see
Everything is perfect
Or so
We like to believe
We have all become
Great actors of life
Playing out on earth’s stage
