Famous books become movies

Famous books become movies

That’s just the way it is,

Because fame means money

And money means success

But what makes a story famous?

And why do people seem to love famous stories

Stories inspire, they help people learn and understand and create

They are dear

They are close to the heart

They are loved

In ways some things just cannot be

They connect with your own story

And help your life make sense

But when you go

With a smile

To see another persons part of your story

You know that one

The one you carry in your heart

With all the excitement

And enthusiasm

And happiness

Your very being can pull together

You should be very careful

Because famous books can often become terrible movies

That’s just the way it is
