My Final Draft

Wordy words and waffl

If I could write your story would I change your final pages

Fix your broken heart and put together pieces that you hold

And would I right the wrongs you suffered with new chapters at my will

Tell your story as you dreamt it, as the sun sets growing old

Would I fill your days with laughter, love and care free evermore

With each line crafted for your pleasure and the joys of life unfold

Or cave to writers block that chokes and cruelly robs me of these words

And like embers once so bright now turned to ashes grey and cold

So dot the i’s and cross the t’s then put this pen of hope away

Or maybe leaves the pages blank, and let that story stay untold

For who am I to tell your story, it is yours alone to tell

So live, write it in your own words, I surely should not be so bold

  1. Are you familiar with the play “Streetcar Named Desire” by Tennessee Williams? The main character is a woman named Blanche. At one point she speaks what I believe is the theme of the script….(something like) “Yes, Magic…that is what I try to give to people…..I don’t tell what is the truth….I tell what OUGHT to be the truth…and if that is a sin, let me be damned for it…..DON’T TURN ON THE LIGHT!!!!!!!”
