Curtains were closed & Stage was ready with a great host
Rehearsal continued, Background filled with different emotions echoed.
Trembling in the corner, a side actress was rubbing her feet together
Cause for the first time in her life,
She was going to be on a big stage.
"Life is a bed of roses" someone recited
"Only if you own the garden" She murmured.
Looking at the lead actress, who was sipping her coffee, eyes closed
She remembered her younger self sipping juice, relaxed, ignorant of the world,
Who was a frog in a well
To her, sea was never exposed.
"How bright this world is!" Her younger self exclaimed,
& Light is gone, everything became dark
Heartbeat started racing with time & sweat raining, cause curtains are going to open,
& She is going to perform,
Ah, now she is out of trance.
Slowly making her way to the stage
Where props are already set up with extras
She stood there looking in the mirror
"Are you afraid?" She asked
A young girl appeared
Crying her eyes out,
"People said, "an eye for an eye"
But it's making me blind
I wanted spring but why fall is so long?
I want to quit, these shackles of happiness
Are too tight
I wanted to be a star, but why I became prop
I want to live but living is hard"
She smiled, caressing her hairs oh so gently
"Life is a drama, start with being an extra
You're surely going to rock
It will take time but don't quit
You've to act daily like a veteran star
Shine so bright, be your own knight
Cause world isn't so bright
You be your own light
And you're going to shine
More than North Star
Life is a drama, not oh so romantic
But a genre of war."
