This is a poem about storytelling, its purpose, meaning, and importance to myself and the world as a whole.

Tell me a story,

Take me away,

Give me a reason

To live one more day.


Throw in some magic,

To give it pizzazz,

And maybe a leopard,

Who listens to jazz.


Tell me a story

Of courage and truth

To return me to

The joy of my youth


Show me a hero,

Who goes on a quest

To rescue a maiden

At no one's behest.


Tell me a story

One centered on love

That ends in a peace

Like that of a dove.


Use words like honor

If that still exists

Somewhere within

These translucent mists.


Tell me a story.

Just take me away.

Give me a reason

To go on today.
