Playright Divine

At birth I have scripts in hand by Playwright Divine.
How I dramatize my life in the main is mine.
At times the role is superb with joys to act out.
A loving kindness is felt causing "dance-about."
At times the role is seedy with grief to act out.
A forlorn rudeness is felt causing "saucy pout."
At times the role is hearty with health to act out.
A vitality is felt causing "voila tout."
At times the role is romance with thrills to act out.
A delightful warmth is felt causing "hearts devout."
At times the role is lonely with voids to act out.
A vacuous blank is felt causing "shield redoubt."
At times the role is active with work to act out.
A dynamic pace is felt causing "trade en-route."
At times the role is passive with calm to act out.
A still quietude is felt causing "peace to sprout."
At death I bid scripts in hand by the parts I played.
How I represented time is forever stayed.
