Everyone has a story

September 14, 2009


It’s hard to change your thinking

When you are so sure you know

Look at your life with wisdom

Ask, “Is it working?”


Answer honestly

Be aware that death is real

It’s universal


Death deserves a good answer

One we must not be afraid

To consider all options

We only die once


Looking at my death

I found a window of hope

I have been surprised by life

I’m willing to share

With those who might just wonder

What information I have


Don’t assume you know

This is about life within

Be still and listen


Everyone has a story

I’ve learned something from each one

Thousands I have heard


You need someone to hear

How you travel in this life

Find someone who will listen

Who’s honest and cares
