Our Story

I’d pre-written our story
It’s plot line constructed
With someone else’s poor
Story telling skills

I’d predicted the end to our
‘Fairy tale’ in an outline
Constructed with
Someone else’s unrealistic expectations

In the middle of our story
We nodded off
And our book
Knocked us on the head

In the middle of our story
We woke up
Our plot line seen
Through new, clearer spectacles

In the middle of our story
We began to write, again
Each word our own
With no end in sight

  1. This is so true for all of us at some point in our lives. We build our dreams of what a relationship will be then run up against reality (the proverbial book on the head), and in the end have to chart a course together. This really spoke volumes to me. Very lovingly done. Thank you for posting this.

  2. I love this. Sometimes we need to get knocked in the head before we realize that only we can write our story. Trying to conform to someone else’s story generally ends in failure. I love your story and I love that you share it with us.
