All the world is a stage
And I am the center of the universe
I have opinions and you do too
But I don’t care about yours
I was raised not to
I’m a writer
Because I am not afraid to let go
I am not afraid to expose my past

All the world is a stage
I will not enter left
And intrude on your scene
But of course, if you welcome me on
We could share the spotlight
I’m a writer
Because I am not afraid to observe
And take notes

All the world is a stage
Despite appearances I am a whisper
In faint dance with the ebb and flow
Of nature
I’m a writer
Because I do not believe I am
Who my parents raised me to be
I am not afraid to pen a new script
I am not afraid to disengage

All the world is a stage
