My Story Shelf


I decided to ask myself
What if I had a story shelf
With lots of little figurines

Each one to represent
Some memory or present
They would tell my life story

On that shelf I'd hide away
In figures made of wood or clay
I'd be told in motionless expression

A dragon - my favorite creature
A ballerina for an impossible future
A book to show my greatest passion

On my story shelf
I'd be able to show myself
Without ever speaking
It'd be like a silent meaning
In those figurines
Made of solid or delicate means
My very own visual book
Come on in and take a look

And on my story shelf you'd find
Some animals - a leopard, leaping high
All the things that I think mean me

A feather quill to show my favorite thing
I wish I could spend all of my time writing
These are all the things you can see

What about the love I share
How can you know if I even care
Can you see love in the air

And how about the joy I feel
When I'm with the God I know is real
How I just got over some ordeal

On my story shelf
I'd be able to show myself
Without ever speaking
It'd be like a silent meaning
In those figurines
Made of solid or delicate means
My very own visual book
Come on in and take a look

This is my story shelf
It tells all about me
In my inside-inmost self
I should convince everyone else
To get themselves their very own story shelf
