… the blank pages

in your book  
as a newborn,  
first entries made  
not yours alone,  
that part of life  
written in stone..  
through chapters of times  
and lifestyles of ages,  
some enter our lives  
like actors on stages,  
we title the chapters  
and fill the blank pages..  
the key to writing  
in the book of life,  
is not chiseled regret  
with hammers of strife,  
it’s not even with  
the ink of the pen,  
it’s using soft lead pencils,  
with good erasers on the end.
