The Pretender

Standard

The Pretender

I awaken each morning

and ask myself,

What role shall I play today?

Who shall I pretend to be

in my interactions

with all that come to the performance?

Shall I be the master or the servant?

The teacher or the student?

The drunkard or the preacher?

The seller or the buyer?

The gardener or the flower that’s blooming?

The sea or the shell?

The poet or the poem?

How can I best perform the act of love

and bring it to reality?
