Everyone Has a Story

Everyone has a story
A novel bottled up inside them
A gripping plot that life provides them
A narrative that is written by living

Everyone has a story
Every life has some gripping drama
With scenes of strife and grief and trauma
Illustrative of the trials of living

We've all lived through moments of pain and grief and fear
We've all been so joyous we could only shed a tear

Everyone has a story
That he or she never seems to mention
But worthy of the world's attention
Evocative of the wonders of living
