Importance of Books

  Books put together a powerful message

                                    You can find words that make you sound impressive

                                For me, a book would make my mood happy, or depressing

                                      The book would speak to me in a conveying way

                                    The message would say, ‘’Don’t put me down today”

                                            A book would feel trapped and left astray

                                               For most of my life, I was in a cage

                                        I was the introvert that was terrified of the stage

                                        Reading a book was my imagination’s getaway

                                                I’m the girl who is the quiet mouse

                                            I either went to the library or my house

                                        I couldn’t escape from my unconfident jailhouse

                                           Except when a book landed in front of me

                                        My heart was the lock and the book was the key

                                                I had to unearth the secrets and see

                                              I discovered a world full of possibilities

                                               Reading is one of my favorite activities

                                            For a while, I can ignore my responsibilities

                                             I’ve learned of all these wonderful stories

                                             Everything is divided up into categories

                                     Fantasy or realistic fiction have their own territories

                                      Those are my favorite genres on my bookshelf

                                          They look impressive just by themselves

                                       I can admire them when I’m overwhelmed

                         My favorite story is written by Lois Lowry called the The Giver

                    The style is so witty, wise, and wondrous that it gives me the shivers

                                Every book has a message that needs to be delivered
