Our stories are our immortality,
But if we don’t tell our own story
Someone else will tell it,
And it becomes their story,
And then we might just…disappear.
If the words that I have written
Fall unfavoured in some other day and age,
They do exist, still.
To tell the tale of who we are,
What we are, what we believe.
We are history poured out on to fragile pages.
(from ‘Home is Not the Place’)
