tell me a story

tell me a story
from the start

tell me
your story

tell me the story of
good things
and sad things
moments when your dreams came true
and those
when you felt there
was no hope

tell me a story
of what was
and what could have been
and what might be

that is
the beauty of a story
you tell

i recall a
trip to africa
some years ago
and how i encountered
folks gathering in small
dusty living rooms
telling stories

i wonder
have we
in this corner of the world
forgotten how to tell
a good story
a story of what has been
and what is

tell me a story
from the first word
and let me
journey with you
to the last

tell me a story.
