An Award for Acting

An Award for Acting…

written by: Arpan Christy



For different scenes and places
different characters I’ve been given.

And the moment I stepped in,
I started acting according to the script
written for me.

The characters I had to play
resided deep within me
such that never realised I, my originality.

Audience appreciated the performance
as they felt like I was not acting at all.

I was assured of
at least an award of appreciation at last.

And when I exited the play
through the door of the grave,
I realized that only those actors get awards,
who perform on the high stages.
I performed always among the audience only.

But at last
I lived my originality
after my exit only!…
