I know somewhere in the darkness
There’s a story meant for me
Where I always know exactly what to say
I know somewhere some surprising ending
Waits for me to tell it my own way
Be the hero of your story if you can
Be the champion in the fight
Not just the man
Don’t depend on other people
To put paper next to pen
Be the hero of your story, boy, and then
You can rise to be the hero once again
Our lives are a story in progress. There’s love, romance, drama, thrilling experiences, ambition, tragedy and happiness. The thing is, if you don’t take responsibility for your experiences and emotions; then someone else will. And then you won’t have ownership of your life or story!
There are a lot of people who will come into your life. Some will teach you lessons and a lot of them will guide and love you. They are a part of your story but don’t let them decide your story. All our stories are unique and every author has their own style and perspective.
If all the stories had the same beginning, learnings and end; we would stop reading them. Their significance would decrease. But, in an array of stories and characters, we connect to some experiences and find solace that we are not alone. And it gives us more courage to take the pen and write your own story!
