For your Amusement

    Poem Commentary

    So I am a full time actress and sometimes I get the pleasure of blending both of my artistic worlds together. And birthed from an acting journal assignment, bore this fruit a beautiful marriage of words with my other world, the greater half of me. In turn I was rewarded with a highly introspective moment! So I thought that on the rarest of occasions that I would share my greater half with my more complex half and then share it with all of you, my beautiful community of understanders. thank you!

    For your Amusement

    It has always amazed me how time seems to blend away so effortlessly

    Your smiles that morph into laughs

    That turns into sorrow, mourning, pain, that all help to pass the time

    And what seemed like dispensable seconds, drift into hours

    That compose days

    Which zone into months that spell out the years of our lives
    That is all just one big moment

    A sketch in time

    And when you are young you feel immortal

    That time, neither age, nor death was created for you

    But all the others in the world

    And that somehow it would never find you

    I’ve been there

    Trapped in that fleeting moment of time I call the “great escape”

    Gives you a cloak of invisibility

    And for teenage seconds of your life


    And all the power and dominion he hath, you hold in your hands

    ...But then I grew up

    And I realize that you can’t always squeeze lemons into lemonade just because you thought you could. That’s the awful thing about maturity

    It makes you realize that the stage of life is all a façade

    And when the curtain closes you are left all alone to deal with the brutality of reality

    -That life is hard

    -Sometimes people suck (and not in a good way)

    -Everyone doesn’t love you (or even like you)

    And that maybe,

    Just maybe,

    That just because you are center stage in your world, doesn’t make you top priority to society

    Everyone has got their own shit

    A trunk full of luggage and not enough duffle bags to carry the load

    You meet a stranger today

    And that face will fade into another

    So in the end what did it all mean anyway?

    Maybe, Just maybe, not a goddam thing.

    When power leads man towards arrogance, poetry reminds him of his limitations. When power narrows the area of man's concern, poetry reminds him of the richness and diversity of existence. When power corrupts, poetry cleanses.
