What if I read you a story

What if I read you a story, 
Starting; “Once upon  a Time”,
And you realized that it was your life, 
Spelt out on every line,
Would you hear my voice with wonder, 
As it brushed across each world,
Would your view on life be different, 
And would it shock you most to find,
That the things you thought defined you, 
Could be summed up in just two lines,
And all the ones you took for granted,
The ins and outs of every day,
Play a bigger part in who you are,
Than you’d ever dared to say,
Would you wonder at the pages left,
And all the places that they’ll lead,
Then vow to make each moment,
One that you’d be proud to read,
Because there is a story of your life,
But it’s you that holds the pen,
And I hope you fill the pages right, 
Before you reach the end.

      1. I have these ideas all the time. What will be written about you? What is your story? I do geneology, so i am quite familiar with what is left in the trails of our lives when we have passed on
