Life story

On the threshold …

My life is my (public) story
I’m telling it to you all the time
with my words, actions and
… omissions.
I constantly give away the plot to my story.

Are you listening?

It’s in the lining of my laughter,
on the surface of my tears,
in the roots of my silence –
these are the stories behind the story of me.

I’m refining, redefining myself
Choices, as powerful as love and hate
hone my life narrative.

I’m always letting go …
of the past
and being transformed into
a new part of me.

This is …
the story
behind the story
of me.

The diamond in the coal.
