Believe it or Not




Believe it or not
there's a book about me
laying on the floor
and it's only the first volume
cause you see
there's a lot...to me

Believe it or not
the pages are full
with stories galore
and tales that would haunt you
do not glance unless
you expect to remember

Believe it or not
my heart is in there
I keep it in a book
therefore not attached
sick is my heart
It would shatter me

Believe it or not
It could shatter you too
If you have empathy
and you read with desire
Knowledge is sometimes
overwhelming

Believe it or not
my book is for sale
there is only one
you must be courageous
to own this story
is to take responsibility

It is to possess me...
