WordPress’ Daily Prompt for today is:

From a famous writer or celebrity, to a WordPress.com blogger or someone close to you — who would you like to be your biographer?

Photographers, artists, poets: show us WORDS.

I’ve attempted a response.


I’m puzzled about it
At the thought of my book
And how my journey would appear
When life lets me off the hook?

I’m curious about them
The old dreams that I have
How will you transcribe them
On fresh pages of a notepad?

I’m wondering about those
People I’ve grown up beside
How will you describe them
When you haven’t seen what I’ve?

I’m wondering about my stories
some of which I want to hide
How can you be honest with them
When I can’t tell you my own lies?

So, I’d rather shy away
When I’m let off the hook
And one day you’d come across
My version of my life’s book.
