Life In Three Acts

Ink lings

The curtain slowly rises and you take center stage
Looking out upon your audience, anxious to engage
A new journey started, a performance just begun
Starring in a new play, embarking on act one

As the play progresses, you perfect your role
Winning fans with kindness, acceptance as your goal
You were meant to play the lead, how well is up to you
The world is now your theater, yours to capture in act two

The parts you played now history, you look back upon the past
Reflect on how you played the roles into which you were cast
You recall all the memories and the star you grew to be
Til He drops the final curtain, dims the lights, and ends act three

About oldmainer

I am retired and live in southern Maine with my wife and two dogs. I started Oldmainer as an outlet for my occasional opinions and random observations, with some poetry thrown in. I welcome anyone that wants to kick back and join me here on the porch, exploring all the gifts we have been given and the memories collected. Thanks for stopping by.
