Poem: Blank Pages

Blank Pages

Blank pages are we,
To be
Molded, folded,
Shaped by loving hands,

Encouraged and guided,
To take our first steps,
Make friends,
Study hard,
Choose a path,

And good things will come,

Not always so clear
Those uncharted paths,
Those unwritten chapters,
Those scary first steps
On our own,

Truth be told,
We are shaped by the paths that we take,

A bit of a guess how the story will end,

Yet breathing,
Loving, seeking,
Dreaming, believing
In the truths we hold dear,
Will yield a full book
Of pages filled in,

In the end,
It’s our life to live.

  1. So much truth here, which I'll hopefully retain!
