Journal tape

“ Tape” When the end of life will have come, and when the memories of life on earth will be revived, it will be a terrible moment for the liars, those who spent their days faking reasons and giving unwarranted basis of engaging in bad behavior. Cheating and lying is one thing, a sin enough for anyone doing it. However, it is worse, the memory of the things that an individual did wrongfully, and the memories of how the individual lied to get out of the situation. This is an emotive play, evoking fear that there is an instance in life when the lies which individuals have been telling, will come back to haunt them. The good thing about the situation is that people will be haunted back, as much as they hurt others. The more lies the person told, the more time he/she will spend listening to them. The bad thing is that, there is no option of forwarding the tape. The individual must listen to every bit of the words said, and in fact if need be, can rewind to understand them better. This is a play sending a warning about telling lies. The play informs individuals, well in advance, that the minimal lies one tells, the better for them, since they will spend less time in the dark room listening to their own words. The use of a tape recorder, which is an ancient technology, indicates that the recording of the lies started long enough, meaning that no aspect of the lies told, will be exempted. This is a warning against telling lies. It is a warning that the lies, once told, will eventually come back and haunt the liar.
