The world’s a stage

Many come to the theatre
To observe the parts being played
Some leave unaffected by the performance
Others stay to share the experience
Very few will be allowed backstage
When the curtain falls
To see the real person behind the masks

Author’s notes
This was written as a brief commentary on the personas we present to different people at various times in our lives.  How we generally only allow a chosen few people to get close enough to really get to know every facet of us.
