"The Rope Of Life", A Magic Routine And Poetry Recital In Times Square

Magician and actor Morten Deurell recently performed this fantastic rope trick with Times Square as the backdrop. The rope tricks are great on their own, but he combines the trick with poetry that fits the trick perfectly. Here is the poem he recites while performing the rope act:

Some people think of life as birth and death
The ticking time from first to final breath
Others try to live a double life
In which to keep a balance is a strife
A certain path to chaos and to pain
Their only wish is just to start again
Some see the selves as victims of lifes puzzle
Others as creators of solution
Fighting with their strength of mind and muscle
In balance they Might come to this conclusion
That suffering and pain was never here
It was the ego that made it appear
Some people will hold on to the illusion.
Trying to keep the truth out of their sight
Always missing out on revolution
Maybe you can help them shine their light
So if someone shows a sign of giving up
They're telling you they want the pain to stop
Then Lend a hand to give them back some order
So they can sail secure through troubled water.
