The stage has been set again
The players need not rehearse
Their lines known by heart
My performance likely the worse
I am the only one that approaches unprepared
While to all else-an identical set
To me a new beginning
Instead of a familiar circumstance
The cast of players stared
Knowing full well I would not understand
That this will not be the final performance
Repeated a thousand times- would be repeated again
So the play resumed
As boring to the cast as the prior and that before
As I stumbled from metaphor to desperate hint
Lost-confused-hope- something to ignore
The play ended the cast left in disgust
What is my part in this endless play I screamed?!
What lesson was I sent to learn?
I sobbed in frustration-Please tell me my dream.
But there was no answer
At least not for me
So the play will repeat
For me—for eternity
