and as the curtains pull back to reveal the stage
one wonders how long your limelight will stay
or how short the applause to your act is
the opening lines determine the quality
while the closing lines determine the memory
its funny how life passes us by, the way we perceive things and what happens in our lives.
one minute we're fine the next the inevitable may fall.
but what determines how we have lived is what we have lived for and why we have lived for such reasons, no matter how callous or magnanimous they may be, it is how we contributed or taken from society that we are remembered for. but for all it is, memory and remembrance of one is relative to a person and how they have interacted with that particular individual before they have left.
even so, many are only cherished and hailed after they have left, and invariably this is how the cycle works for many. for people are only known for their good after their departure. it is human nature to constantly forget and take for granted what is there. but it is also human nature to only hold on to what they have lost after they have realised it is gone forever.however, what they hold on to is a memory and never the real deal, but for many it is all they have left.
when the events in your life and people you encounter become routine rather than a joy to bask in everyday which holds surprises, you then realise, if you even can, that these people and events are situations and individuals whom you just perceive to be there constantly and always in your life. but we should without fail each day, thank whoever is up there watching over us, that we have the honor of receiving these people in our everyday lives, and that daily there are people out there who care for us and make our lives worthwhile. for it is only then will you realise that your stage has the most calls for encores, for it is only then will your closing lines be the most memorable, even if it is only in the eyes of the people around you. for those are the people who matter the most.
so i thank whoever out there, for making my stage worthwhile ((: cheers.
