Role Play

Building a life that suits all and sundry,
We want to slip into your shoes, to play a lifetime role
With soft and sweet dialogues; the heart warming smile.

Unlikely to be erupted again,
We intend to be noticed; be always under the limelight
Not to be undermined by the unknown, by perils and temptations.

Building a leafy oasis for quenching thirst,
A jaded mind, a barrier life knows no bounds, a mask to be there,
Unclog drains inside, upping flood defences against the onslaught.

Retraces the life contour,
Darkness and secrecy can deter, can track down the success and myth.
It’s like being asleep and dreaming; have we all learnt enough?

You may be me…I am you…the role play goes on…
