If All the World's a Stage, I'll Manage

If all the world's a stage
in the theatre I play the creator
not in any way mysteriously 
but through grueling work
that aches my back and callouses my hands
as I create a world of art
piece by piece painting scenes
bringing to life the playwrites fantasies
and framing them to give to all.
If all the world's a stage
in the theatre I am the sun
lighting the scene delicately 
in a perfect constellation.
I am the wind
composing the sounds articulately
in a melodic array.
To stage manage is to create a mosaic 
of the minds of the director
forming a meticulous work of art
to give to the world
a frame reflecting itself.
If all the world's a stage
in the theatre I'm the worlds tool to create a work of art in efforts to reflect and better understand itself-
to better understand ourselves
