At the end of the day,

We all tell stories

Because they are the only thing

We can hold onto.

Stories are the thread

That we can weave across

Disparate and contradicting

Times of our lives.

Stories are the reasons

We make up in our heads

For all of the loss, grief, and pain

We’ve each withstood.

And stories are malleable.

We can emphasize and exaggerate

The pieces that make us feel

Our stories are real.

But most importantly,

We can always

Change the ending we foresee.
