The Story Of Our Lives, A Poem
The Story of Our Lives – A poem by Julie Boyer
What would you write if you had to tell the story of your life?
We all have a story, a beginning and someday, an end
And everything that happens in between
There is a quiet here, a reflective lack of sound,
As though time has slowed down
And we are left with nothing but the sound of rain
Yet time still passes and the story is written
Wondering how seasons pass so quickly
We rush in and out of space
How soon we become who we once only dreamed of
Someone who lived in a time so far from our childhood
And awaken in a world we once took for granted
We hold on to the days, the nights, the seasons
Time rushes out of our grasp and we struggle
Struggle to find time, make time, use time
Instead of making time and taking time
We are locked in a battle we can never win
As time will outlive us all
This is life, our time, our only chance to live
To breathe, to laugh, to dance, to cry
Too soon it becomes nothing but our story
A moment passes, never to exist again
We let it go without a thought
It becomes but a sentence in our story
We forget ourselves in our lives, our day to day existence
Forget that life is what we make of it
Forget that we can choose to have anything we desire
What is in our hearts is what matters in the end
Living a life that remembers moments
And enjoying time, that is all that really counts
How do you want your story to be written?
You choose, you decide
And the words will be laid out before you
So take this time you have been given
And live, laugh and love!
For we pass through this life only once
And at the end of our story, that is all that truly matters
