Thank you all so much for consenting

to star in the movie in which I am acting,

directing, writing, and inventing


I'm especially grateful to you my "enemies"

Because of you I'm busy reacting and defending

You've played the role of antagonist so well

that I actually forgot we're just pretending


To my love interests, family, coworkers and friends

it's as if the parts were written with you in mind

You've really made your characters come alive

If it weren't for you, I would have remained so blind


Acquaintances, I'm thankful for you as well

Trust me, bit parts these are not

Even though you may not realize it

you are quite essential to the plot


Whenever I tire of wearing all these hats

and I feel as if I'm sliding off track

it's a relief to know I can give up my Director's Chair

and let the Holy Spirit pick up the slack


So even though I understand none of my choices were wrong

I still wait for guidance from Him because

I just realized that it's been His production all along
