My Joy Of Reading

I lose myself

Forget about the world around me

The anger and rage

That wants to build up inside me

But I don’t let it

I open up a book

And lose myself in the pages

I heighten my imagination

Increase my vocabulary

Learn things I never knew

I fall into a world

That is far from me

But really happening right around the corner

I journey to places I think

I may never get to

I get mad, I get sad

I laugh, I cry

It’s all in my joy of reading

I just lose myself

Forget about the tasks before me

And focus on turning the page

To see what happens next

I get inspired

To speak for the characters

That have no voice

I take notes to start stories of my own

It’s just me, the book, the words

I forget about the problems of the world

The problems in my life

And that’s where I get

My joy of reading
