A story to tell
If our story was sat on a bookshelf
how would it be to re-read it yourself
Would there be tears shed over past regrets
or happiness as our life is re-tread.
Could it ever be explained in a book
what we experienced during childhood
Would reading the topic be off limits
or a most enjoyable revisit.
Though back in the day times were indeed tough
we were upbeat and contented enough
We would appreciate all that we had
life as I remember was not that sad.
A roller coaster, many slides and swings
the joys, heartaches and traumas life brings
Should our story be acted out on stage
would we desire to script-write every page?
Then when doth cometh our expiration
it’s hoped we receive a grand narration
That folk would have only dear things to say
putting it out there in a kindly way.
Everyone has their own story to tell
whether it would or would not stand up well
We must wait to find if our history
makes for an engaging delivery.
