Life feels so much like a puppet play
With every move and word I say
From birth controlled at the very beginning
Where Love would pull at every string
The curtain opens as the show starts
And we act on stage with memorised parts
As marionette strings pull us this way and that
While we jump to it's bidding at the drop of a hat
As the crowd watches laughing with glee
The puppet troupe charms with camaderie
And fear and despair have slowly grown
As you see without strings you can't stand on your own
And the music plays softly in your ear
Your puppet eyes slowly release release a tear
And as the curtains close you know
Life's no more than a puppet show.

This is real talent.
I love this.
ALTHOUGH,life Is MUCH MORE than a puppet show
The only one pulling MY strings is Almighty,
All Knowing and Everlasting the one True
Puppet Master!

I liked this poem.  Interesting perspective on life that you present.  I think your right on in some respects.  When we recognize the ways that we all play a part, it brings better understanding of ourselves and how we live.
Nice job with this piece. Very original I think.

Nice work Tal. I too liked your perspective on life. Maybe once we notice how little control we have we gain the ability to earn more.

This is a great poem! I can really relate to life as a puppet, but it gets more complicated when the strings are pulling a thousand diffrent ways. Anyway, keep up the good work!
