What If The World Was Just A Book? - Poem by Emma Kessler

What if the world was just a book
Some other man has written?
And we were just the characters
Playing out our parts
What if everyday of our lives
Was just another chapter?
Every action, every word
Just lines written on our hearts

    Nice poem, Emma! ! Indeed, your thought here it's a little bit hard to understand.I liked this line: 'What if everyday of our lives Was just another chapter? '.Somehow, our lives are like a book.When we are born, we are like a white sheet that the people that we know, the society that we live, ourselves will write on it.In my opnion, everyday of my life is like a new chapter that I write.The only thing that we live after we are gone from this life is a memory.We should ask ourselves: 'How people will remember us after we're gone? ' We have lots of examples in the history like Hitler, Lady Diana, Jesus Christ, Martin Luther king Jr. etc.

    I believe our lives are already written ahead of us. Any 'choice' we make now was written in the play. Life is nothing but the inevitable.

    Yeah, you may or may not agree, but it's what I think =]
