My story

by joetwo

Listen to me

For I have a story to tell

Of my life, what I have done

All I have lost and what I learned from losing

Of the love I have felt, the despair when it came to an end

But more than that

For my story is more than what I was

It is also what I could be

What I could have been

The road not taken, the question not asked

All these add to the narrative, the infinite complexity

The multitudes that make the man

Listen to my story

And I will hear yours

Let our voices add to the great cacophony

Threads in the tapestry

The artwork of history.
