My life is an open book

By: Joe Attanasio

Some people want to deny

Thinking they will ever die

We only live a short time

Yes it seems such a crime

So little time to see and do

Wake up and get a clue

Life will be gone before you know

Your story will be all you show

We write our story every day

Think hard what you want to say

There are many chapters in our story

Some filled with pain, others glory

When you get to chapter two

Chapter one will be all through

Once it is written, it is in stone

The good, bad and ugly shown

If a chapter paints you bad

Try not to feel too sad

The chapter you are writing now

Can be filled with WOW!

Let others read your chapters past

They will give you comments if asked

Listen to what they have to say

Their input can help pave your way

Don't make up your story as you go

Make an outline, to aid your flow

Only one character you can control

Your character has the whole role

You can edit the sentence in your mind

Once spoken, it is defined

Think of what you want to say

Before on your pages of life it lay

May your story be happy and bold

Your hopes and wishes told

May your life be a lovely fun read

Your legacy filling all that you need

A surprise ending can be expected

The end never is projected

May your story be a classic

Your life have been fantastic!
