No two books are alike,
nor are their authors,
but every book and writer
has one thing in common with the rest.
A book carries years of memories
made up of stories that were just that,
until someone gave it a meaning
and a reason to be told.
Though the story has meaning
the book has a purpose; a mandate
Some are written to encourage
others to make one laugh, cry, and think.
Not one book or story
would fulfill it’s given duty
if words were changed
or certain parts left out.
Every word, or form of punctuation,
is written with intention
and so it must be, to achieve the goal
put in place by the pen’s holder.
Consider the ups and downs,
gains and losses, successes and failures
and remember the pen,
held in the hand of God.
