Stories are not the problem

June 8, 2022

Stories are

Not the problem.

The problem is

The stories

Being real,

And true,

And mine.

It's not really

That the stories


Or fall away.

It's that all

The stories

Are just stories.

What I call

My story is

No more real,

No more significant,

No more important

Than yours.

Stories never belong

They were never

About me

Or you,

Or us,

Or them.

In the telling

It's all stories,

Just beautifully

Empty stories.
