Your Story Should Be Told

Your Story Should Be Told prose poem

Photo by kla4067

Each one of us has a story
And one that should be shared
Not one that’s strict and rigid
Nor overly prepared

But one that comes straight from the heart
The journey you’ve been taking
Of things you’ve done, the battles won
The life that you’ve been making

It may not always go your way
At times it gets quite old
The emptiness and sorrow
Is more frigid than the cold

But the journey went on and so did you
When down, you got back up
And fought the fight
With all your might
You’ve always had enough

But strength, just like your story
Lies deep within the well
But first you must work to overcome
Those old stories that you tell

Those lines that say you’re not enough
And always doomed to fail
That no one really likes you
Your mind is one big jail

But the cell is never closed real tight
It’s open just a crack
And you need to open up that door
To leave, and don’t go back

There’s more to you than what you think
More power deep inside
A light that helps to guide you
And will never let you hide

For you have one great story
It’s a story to be told
It’s never too late to start one
And you’ll never be too old

And believe it or not you’re not alone
There are others who have been there too
Those who are still inside that cell
And don’t know what to do

Who look at that door while lost in thought
But then see the faintest light
And wonders where it comes from
Beyond the darkness and the night

That light is your true story
Of the places that you’ve been
The experiences you’ve encountered
The cells that you’ve been in

And that light is there to guide them
As they look to find their way
A light that you provided
That turned their night to day

And as you tell your story
Then others may do so too
And shine their lights
Into the night
And share what they’ve been through

And one day in the future
You’ll look back upon your life
And see how misplaced self talk
Was where you found your strife

And once you listened to your heart
And followed your inner guide
You found the strength and courage
To leave the strife behind

But more than that you shined your light
For others to behold
That light it was your story
And your story should be told.

Did you ever have the feeling like you were "lost"? Maybe not so much in a physical sense, but in regards to where you are in life. A feeling like you were meant for much more, or that you just weren't doing all the things you were capable of doing; you were missing your purpose; you weren't fulfilled.I am a personal trainer and coach, a Law of Attraction practitioner, as well as a professional public speaker, and I use my message of inspiration, along with my experience with anxiety and depression, to present uplifting and motivating speeches to help you find the life that provides you with purpose and fulfillment.With life, the journey is the reward, and I love to help others on their journey, and show them how to have an outstanding time while doing so. Remember, no matter where you are, there you are; and if you happen to be there, why not be awesome!
