#NaPoWriMo | Day 19 | Stories

stories mess you up, but also heal

they give you tools to process and feel

like the ones i was told by old man
to let life tell me
ones he asked me to collect to narrate
to the next generation i would see

like the ones i seemingly fight for
so hard all day long
ones in my head that keep playing
to the tunes of that old feel-good song

like the ones i draw all possible
strength(s) from
ones i hear and read about strangers
fighting against all odds and storms

stories are magic, words are tools
documentation is key
and me? an in-love fool
