The Power of Books


Whether you are Rugged and Disheveled
or Sleek with everything Perfect
Whether you spend your life Shelved
or thrown about forever in Neglect.
Your ruffled pages and smudged lines
beautiful script and crisp paper
Each word creating a New World that Shines
Home, you are no longer an invader.
You are a Friend to all who listens
providing protection to the Scared
Lifting those who feel life's burdens
Terrifying the ones who are unprepared.
    Words that long for the reader's eager eyes
    Only you can hold those who never die.
