I have read the chapters over,
looked at my story
and reviewed all the words.
I've thought about the impact,
what has happened to bring me
to this next chapter in my life.
It's been a story of twists and turns,
unexpected changes, disappointments
and happiness.  All rolled into one.
It brings wisdom to me,
seeing the places I've been
and the chapters I have written.
Because I can't fool myself
into thinking that
someone else has written this story.
It's my story.  It's my words.
My experiences have
inspired the life that is now
on these pages.
The pages I can review
but not change.
The pages I can read
but choose not to re-live.
The blank pages ahead.
The chapters I still have to write
because there is no way
my story ends here.
Players still need their stage -
their entrance and exit.
Drama, comedy, it is all
still playing out, because
I am the main character
narrating the story.
So as I take up my pen,
and write my next adventure,
I have a choice to make it
one of great growth and
excitement. 
It's my story -
and now, I will write it as I wish.
