How The Story Ends

Professor, therapist, author and poet.






Different scruples, different molds
This how the story folds

Different pursuits, different hunts
This is how the story stunts

Different contests, different games
This is how the story maims

Different seaports, different ships
This is how the story slips

Different retreats, different haunts
This is how the story taunts

Different dogmas, different faiths
This is how the story scathes

Different ventures, different stakes
This is how the story rakes

Different yearnings, different goals
This is how the story shoals

Different measures, different plans
This is how the story pans

Different cohorts, different friends
This is how the story ends
