Stories are helpful.
They tell us what has been
They let us share, and care
They help us learn lessons that matter
And forget hurts that don't.
Stories warn us of what we can expect
and allow us to understand why things are
And what has been
It's comforting to know a story so well
that we can recite it without reading the words
Except when we know our version of the story so well
We've forgotten the actual words all together.
