People are like books,
Some are wiser than the rest.
Others are adventurous,
And some are written to impress.
I think the life span of a person,
Is the same as the length of a book created,
Just because some might be shorter,
They can still be very much appreciated.
The most beautiful story
May have an ugly cover
See for yourself,
Go out and discover.
People have led wonderful lives
In the short time allowed
Their kind-hearted actions
Have left their loved ones proud
I'm in control of my own story
And you are too,
Because if you were a book
The author is you.
