We read and write
but why do so
We are consumed in books, tv and more
Our doors and windows are closed and so are we.

We stay inside
lock our doors and never leave
We only read and watch tv.
We teach children that tv and books are the only way to learn,
But we forget one old tradition.

Go outside, see for yourself,
don't depend on someone else.
Leave your house and look around.
We learn the most not from books, but from trips, people, and history.
The one who reads and watches tv day to night, never really experiences life.
