Hearing the Tale

In the middle of life, everyone has a tale
A tale of your life story, one that everyone will tell
Everyone will have an opinion and a reason to ask
Why one must stand in a bright light and do nothing but bask
Bask in the glory of knowing that in the middle, there was something done right
But also know that no matter what, something was also done wrong in this fight
No matter what, there is not much perfection to behold
Only a notion of whether to care or to be cold
To show emotion when your story is being told
Or be cold, knowing that a perfect story gets old
If your story has flaws and interesting turns and twist
Your story will have value, trust when I say this
