Beginning with "Once upon a time."
Soon you'll find that its your life,
Written out in every line.
Would you hear in my voice wonder,
As it brushed over each word?
Would you hope I had the strength to hold
The truth about your world?
Perhaps I'd see your view change,
And the shock that you might find,
The things you thought defined you,
Summed up by a measly few lines.
And instead the pages would be filled,
With your ins and outs of every day.
They play a bigger part
Than you'd ever dare to say.
Would you wonder about what comes next.
And all of the places it might lead?
Or would you vow to make each page
One you'd be proud to hear me read?
This is the story of your life.
It's you that holds the pen.
I hope you fill your pages right,
Before you reach the end.
