Poem -

We all have stories

We all have stories you see
One for you and one for me
Each one starting when we were a lad
Each one different than the last
Each one expanding
Each one growing without us even knowing
One mans story travels from sea to sea
Looking for who he may be 
One mans story works him till his fingers bleed
For he has five mouths he must feed
One womans story sacrifices her dreams
For a child she must conceive
But you see
 a wonderful mother she turned out to be 
One woman story you wouldn't believe
No way that happened since she was three 
What kind of father could that be
We all have stories as you can see
Some may be like heaven 
Some may be like hell
Only time will tell
Some may be simple 
Some may be Grand
But all are of the Master Grand plan
