we are all characters
our lives,
stories
under The Writer’s fingers.
works in progress—
unfolding,
evolving.

yet every now and then
we are given free rein
to ‘write’ ourselves.

to close ‘plot holes’
correct ‘errors’
join incoherent parts
rectify ‘tenses.’

to improve our ‘style’
perfect our ‘voice’
rethink our life’s ‘theme’
and make ourselves ‘resonate.’

we are all WIPs
yet we can turn ourselves
into great stories
before The Writer
scribbles

The End.
