Stories with the same beginning and end

Stuck in the middle, all books on the mend

Writing pages with each day amassed

Hoping for legacies after we've passed


Fame and fortune for them all

Making them slip and making them fall

Years lost and some forgotten

Crisp white pages now turned rotten


Finding acceptance in uniform

Feeling stuck in a world made to conform

Nooks and crannies for pages burned

In a crackling fire, all lessons learned


Countless ways to tell a tale

Stories for generations to hail

Humbled, changed, and on the rise

Write it again, edit and revise


Need to talk?
