An Ode to Books

What is a world?

Without the pages bound together?

Without records of our happenings?

Without the clouds of fiction?

Running wild with the exuberant ideas,

Do writers give words to their thoughts.

Novels, poetry, or drama they put together,

Giving life to what only seems unreal.

Choosing one from the coutless choices,

Poses as quite the task.

Sitting down to live the story,

Through every word, you start to bask.

Dictionaries are an adventure to find words,

Comics are the ones to get away from the real world,

Guides and maps help you find your way,

While self help reads are what make you stay.

Every page is a new destination,

Every chapter is a new revelation,

Every end brings a thirst for more,

Every cliffhanger, you want to explore.

Every bad ending, you burst with rage.

Every book is a stage,

Every reader is a witness to it,

A one-on-one show, go savour it!

Think about it.

What is a world?

Without the text running along the pages?

Without these capsules of wit and wisdom?

Without a place for imagination?

Books are uniquely portable magic. ~Stephen King
