Inspired by Veechar (self reflection) from the divine teachings of the SGGS and Shakespeare’s “All the world’s a stage” speech

ਸਭ ਕੈ ਮਧਿ ਸਗਲ ਤੇ ਉਦਾਸ ॥: Remain in the midst of all, and yet detached from all (sggs 296).

All the world’s a stage,
And all the men and women merely players;
They have their exits and their entrances;

This worldly play

keeps rolling out,

At its own momentum,

The sheer brilliance

in how it’s set,

Gives rise to total freedom,

The script writer,

Did set it fourth,

One Word,

Of Truth,

So pure,

From it arose three spin-offs,

And from them many more,

A human life series was added,
To share the gifts galore,

Narratives were planned,

And what would come before,

The whole story,


Voices of one plot,

We are universal lovers,
Forgiven sinners,

All given a timely slot,
The director,
Makes only one demand,
Humbly, If we do so act

Then our black-box recording

Will always remain in tact,

This will be joyous viewing,

And forever in it,

We will bask,

It is a multi-genre bonanza,

Creative spaces,

So vast,

An all encapsulating mystery,

Nothing has ever passed,

Flash recordings,

The eye witnessing I,

Storage on every blink,

Connecting thoughts,

As we stop, look and think,

Aligning messages,

Bringing fantasy to life,

The untouchable genius,

More than a shining light,

The realm of knowledge,

Makes b-movies of Google,

And our attempts to pixel-ate,

We emulate your vision,
To love and create,
Back in word,

Your formidable stanza,

Constantly adapting verses,

No second takes,

Nobody rehearses,

No one remembers,

You are the eternal flame,

We are but your embers,

You make us real,

As we do plan to serve.
