Before the curtains fall

Standing on center stage 

Performing our part the best we can

Some want to be applauded, cheered on

Other can’t wait to be done and leave the limelight

Do something that’s memorable before the curtains fall

So that you live in the hearts of all those

Whom you met with, interacted and associated with

When you were playing yourself on the stage of life

Written in response to Thursday Inspiration, hosted by Jim

  1. Did you do any acting Sadje. Your title made me think about one of my favorite songs by Cream called Badge. The lyrics say, “you better pick yourself up from the ground before they bring the curtain down,” I guess the curtain never comes down till the fat lady sings. This is a lovely poem, thanks for joining in again.

  2. When I was young I played whatever part others wanted me to. At 50 I decided to just be who I am. Lost some who said they were friends. Farewell to them. I am at peace with who I am and happy.

  3. A wonderful ‘always put your best foot forward’ poem.
    I read somewhere that when you get up in the morning (mirror or not) – start the day with a smile on your face!
    😀 the positiveness will hopefully permeate all that you do.
