A GOOD SHORT STORY
GOD turned the pages of life
and read my story.
It was non-fictional.
Told a story from sun up to sun down.
Read my every thoughts.
GOD skimmed silently over my every word.
Smiled when I took my first step,
Gasped when I fell,
re-read the part when I helped
with her grocery bags from the market.
And he shook his head and shed a tear
when I cursed for no apparent reason.
GOD knew the ending to my story.
He skimmed to its end,
and it was good.
But back to where he had stopped
Continuing where he had left off,
thus bring me back to life
