Everybody Has A Story To Tell - Poem by Katherine Perry

Everybody has a story to tell
The story of how their life's been so far
Everything good, to anything bad, sick or well
Times that have touched their hearts, to times
that have left scars

Everybody has a story to tell
From doing something heroic or becoming a star
Or maybe living all your life in wealth
Then a tragedy occurs, now your living in a car

Everybody has a story to tell
Tell me what yours would be
Would it be about times you've soared or times
you fell
And tell me so far, what have your eye's seen

Everybody has a story to tell
So has yours been like mine
Do you feel you've failed more than you've
And do you sometimes feel like your running
out of time

So does everybody have a story to tell
Or do some out there live in silence
For their story is so sad our hearts would melt
Knowing they're stuck in a world of abuse or
maybe violence

So the answer is yes, everybody has a story to
Even if they don't tell it
For if we could just try to look into people's
hearts and see where they dwell
Their story would not have to speak the words to
tell it!

Everybody has a story to tell
What's yours?
