    Prelude to a New Beginning
    Postlude to an end
    This story is not one you skim
    It is one you read again
    But what is better than reading
    Than living out the book?
    For every story told
    Could have been a path you took
    My occupation is an author
    I write this life of mine
    Like a performer on the stage
    It is known by heart - Line for line
    If you are not happy with your life
    Transcribe a brand new page
    Then like a script to a play
    Act it out “on stage”
    Sometimes you do not know
    What it is that you desire
    You might live a couple pages
    Then burn them in the fire
    It is the climax of the story
    That draws the reader in
    That sustains your audience
    Until they have read the end
    Have you ever read a story
    That does not have an epilogue?
    The pages never end
    Like an infinite prologue
    You just cannot stop reading
    You cannot put down my book
    You will want to write yourself in
    Just to say you had partook
    But until I cast your role
    The show must go on!
    Reality is the stage
    That I am acting on
