This Show Called Life



All the world's a stage
and all the men and women merely players
so break out of your cage
you don't always want to be with the surveyors.

Every day's a dress rehearsal
for the greatest show called Life.
No need to translate, it's universal
no matter the amount of happiness or strife.

Each day is a new beginning
a chance to learn from what's in the past.
If you succeed then you are winning
but if not you are never a miscast.

Keep in mind there are no stand ins
only you can fill the important part
because even a set of Siamese twins
can't successfully share the exact same heart.
