Crumbled Paper

I was a plain paper…
You wrote stories;
Added value to me.
                                              
And one day…
You crumpled me;
And threw in a corner.

  3. What a parallel there is to life here. We are formed, develop, achieve, then sadly become nothing again.

  4. That sounds very sad. Once that paper stands up and uncle plus itself, it will move on to write a happier story. Trust me, I know these things, smiles.

  9. He giveth and he taketh...the value is in our own perception of worth. It hurts to be crumpled and thrown in a corner...
