Read

Read for yourself and others
To be able to know and learn
A little more out about this infinite
Spectrum which we are part of
For its importance to appreciate
The countless things we misuse
Being able to have constructive
Discussion about human beings
Nature and never ending subjects
Rather make useless gossip grow
To not waste time over gossiping
A well read person will have better
Thinking capacity and tolerance
For others opinions with reasoning
From getting a chance to travel
Across worlds and cultures you will
Know places and people as your own
Hope will grow on our land again
As a change will occur in people who
Have been busy with guns and blood
Words will string us together as a
Rope tightly held in place and the
Rusted lines will teach us lessons
Long forgotten as we dumped books

If I could

If I could I would travel from
One book to another and watch
My favourite stories unfold in
Front of my eyes while I get drunk
On the enchanting scent of words
I would spend nights hiding in the
Most interesting chapters and observe
In delight how the characters coped
With changes and unexpected events
Of their life hoping to learn the same
I’ll pick magical words and weave
Dreams that I’ll wear before sleeping
So I’d know what it feels to wake up
With a smile and giggle with delight
I’ll crawl between paragraphs curling
Into a ball so I could hide from the world
I would sleep between blanket of words
Spilled on a pages protected from all
Harms and heart breaks that humans
So viciously cause in name of humanity
I’ll dissolve my very essence in to the
Half erased pages till I can findĀ home
