You have hope and joy at your fingertips,
but just how far are you willing to reach?
Life is just a book of empty pages.
A story that’s interpreted by each.

Is the story you write full of drama?
Or a mystery that’s full of suspense?
Romance novel with hero’s and bad guys?
Or a life story that’s just too intense?

Does it read like a “Do it yourself” guide?
Or does the story involve more then one?
Is it a book that’s written for success?
Will you be satisfied when it is done?

Will your story sit on a lonely shelf?
Empty pages growing yellow with time.
Or will you fill it with such happiness,
That there’s a novel,even between lines.

Fill the pages with so much hope and joy.
That when it finally ends up on a shelf.
It will read good as any best seller
And you can say that you wrote it yourself.



 With perseverance even the snail reached the Ark.

I see you've been doing something productive with your time...this was a great read girl!  Can you teach me how to be productive??  I seem to be unable to write squat as of late...**sigh.   Thanks for the funny messages you left me...I can always use a smile...and yes, looks like we need to make an appointment for a combo poem from us...Just let me know when you have a brainstorm, ok?

I enjoyed this piece!

"Life is just a book of empty pages.

Excellent lines!
