What if I start reciting to you a story,
Starting with ‘once upon a time’,
Revolving around a captivating human,
And their actions since their very existence.
You hear my words with great interest,
And resonate with every sentence I say.
Slowly it dawns upon you,
That I am simply describing your way.
Would your interest slowly change to wonder,
As I brush across each word.
Would you be surprised by the strength I hold,
About every truth that I know about your world.
Would your view of life be different,
Would it shock your insides,
The things that you thought defined you,
Can all be summed up in 2 lines.
Would you be proud of your actions,
Would your head lower down in shame,
Are these the actions you’d own,
Or deny them in regret.
As I go through the pages of this story,
And all the places it’ll lead,
Would you wonder about the pages left,
And vow to change how the story further read.
