Below is my poem comparing life and cinema. I hope you enjoy it!
C I N E L I F E
Betty Jo Tucker
Curtains open. The film begins.
Hero or villain – which one wins?
They fight within us every day
in how we act or what we say.
Our lives are like a big movie
that’s scripted by ourselves, you see.
Our laughs, our loves are what we choose.
But some mistakes we’d like to lose.
Forgive them all. It’s part of life.
They can be judged as human strife.
Ending credits begin to scroll.
Watch carefully for signs of soul.
Curtains close. The end is here.
Time for critics to boo or cheer.
This cinelife is now all through.
Another film will start anew!
