THESPIAN

THESPIAN

Standing at the crossroads in afterlife, a young man evokes the Almighty, with all his soul’s might.
And VoilĂ ! GOD replies, may be the prayer was all from soul or the connection was better being very close to Him.
Nevertheless he laments to God,” What did I do wrong to be up here so soon?”
GODWrong? You did everything thing right my son.
Boy- Then why am I here?
GODCause all your wishes have come true. You wanted to have a full life, one that is fraught with ups and downs, riches and poor, love and hatred. And you had it.
Boy- How? Last I remember I was on stage.
GODThat’s where you had it all. You gave life to the characters you played, like a parent does and experienced their emotions as your own. You are a true Thespian, my son.
Boy- Will anyone ever miss me?
GOD Your true love, she already weeps tears of joy.
Boy- Love?
GODThe stage, my son. She is already looking forward to your return. Come my boy, let’s get you back to her.
And with that somewhere back on earth a very proud but exhausted couple became parents.
