What if I read to you a story?
Starting as: “ONCE UPON A TIME”,
And you notice that it’s your life,
Spelled out on every line of each word with the same space,
Would you hear each word with eagerness?
As I reach towards each new line, would your ears stand tall and be keener towards the sound of my lips prompting?
Crossing your fingers with each other, and pray your arms had more strength to carry, the truth behind the nightmare?
Would your view on life be the same or different?
And what would shock you the most?
The things you thought would describe you would be summed up in just two lines?
And the parts you took for granted,
Play a larger role in who you were and what have you become.
Would you wonder about all the pages left and also the trips were undone?
Would you be proud to read, the pace you walked against all odds?
Because this is a story of your life,
And what if I say you, you still hold the pen,
Then I hope you will fill the pages right and the gaps tight,
Right, as you want the trip, to end.
