Stories We Tell and Hear

Life revolves around told and heard tales,
Our biases adding color without fail.
A story can have varied flavor,
Like multiple tastes to slowly savor.

So many tales to share and hear,
Narrations changing from mouth to ear.
Molded by observation and interpretation,
Contoured with varying perception.

Stories continuously change version,
Of the same event, place or person.
Grand in scale are the variation,
From inception to adaptation.

Some stories we hear are powerful,
Others can be mundane and dutiful,
Still others fun filled, fearful or fanciful,
Narratives that challenge are most beautiful.

Stories include both facts and feelings,
About experiences in varied setting and dealing,
Some we may loathe, while others are appealing,
Stories exist without a ceiling.
