Gotta Story? - Poem by Robert H. Saehloff

You betcha got a story--
It's your life in all its glory,
From the first hello, to the last goodbye-
Recorded is each low and high.

Each and every joy and strife--
Is listed in your book of life,
And, depending on whether you lose or win,
Your book will be thick or thin.

Each day you'll wonder what to do,
But eventually you will follow through,
And each event will have a nook--
On the pages of your book.

Live every sentence and each word therein--
That describes each place you've been--
So that your book is not a mystery--
But a treasured living history.
