We All Have a Story to Tell

we-all-have-a-story-to-tell

Get out that paper and your pen.

Write down those times, of where and when.

Memories you remember well.

We all have a story to tell.


Each chapter has a special tale.

Part of your story they unveil.

This is my life I hear you yell.

We all have a story to tell.


Some chapters fill you with regret.

Some, that you don’t want to forget.

Others feel like a living hell.

We all have a story to tell.


You have the ones from your nightmare.

When things you feel, are hard to bear.

The pain inside you want to quell.

We all have a story to tell.


Don’t let them fester deep inside.

Speak with someone, you can confide.

To get out of that prison cell.

We all have a story to tell.


Forgive and learn from your mistakes.

New chapters now your future makes.

Embrace each one, feel your heart swell.

We all have a story to tell.


Pick up that paper and your pen.

And start to write them down again.

bid your sadness a fond farewell.

We all have a story to tell.

Yes, I also agree with you. We all do have a story to tell and specially those who are alone, frustrated and have no one to converse with. Great read.

Thanks Lora. Yes talking and writing are a great release.

A very nice poem, Charlie! Yes, we all do indeed have a story to tell. Sometimes writing about it or talking about it can really be cathartic. All of us have our ups and downs, and sometimes just acknowledging them can help us move forward.

Writing down those thoughts, feeling and worries is such a healthy way to make you feel better. It's true we all have a story to tell and your poem highlights this beautifully.
