What's in a story that makes you laugh?
that makes you cry?
that wrings forth from the lips a heartfelt sigh?
Is it mood that sways with persuasion?
Like sappy songs and presentation?
Or strange words that lacked a voice
and now resonates perfect word-choice?
Maybe it is joy, camraderie
that makes us cheer
and gives us glee.
And if that's so, then what is life?
but a shared story
that gives us peace
and hope of glory?
