You Are Your Own Story

Ink and Soul

By shanmuga priyaPublished about a month ago 1 min read

You are the stories you build yourself,

Crafted from dreams upon your shelf,

With every word and every deed,

You plant the seeds of what you'll be.

In the quiet of your mind,

Narratives and plots entwine,

Pages turn with each new day,

As you carve out your own way.

Through valleys deep and mountains high,

Under the vast, unending sky,

You script your journey, brave and bold,

In hues of silver, bronze, and gold.

Every challenge faced, each fear,

Transforms to chapters rich and dear,

With ink of sweat and tears of joy,

You write a life none can destroy.

In moments dark and times of light,

You are the hero in your sight,

With heart and soul, you lead the tale,

A testament you will not fail.

For you are the stories you build yourself,

Not bound by others’ dreams or stealth,

But by the truth your spirit sings,

In tales of queens and peasant kings.

So wield your pen with courage strong,

Let your tale be your own song,

For in the end, when all is through,

Your story’s voice will echo true.

    The imagery you use, from the dreams upon our shelves to the valleys, mountains, and skies we traverse, paints such a vivid and empowering picture. The lines about facing challenges and transforming them into rich, dear chapters really resonate. Wonderful!
