I believe that no matter who you are we all leave footprints on this Earth


Open its pages, unfurl the magic
Let the words flow, both hope and tragic
Rowling, Tolkien, Meyer and more
All writing to open a door

Imagination leaps from the pages
It is an escape from reality
Worlds with dragons, wizards, and mages
It is an escape from reality

The simple smell of a fresh book
Draws you in like a hook
It’s a wonderful way to expand your mind
Open up a book, its well worth your time!

Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass, but learning to dance in the rain.

I really like this! the rhyming is perfection! It should be framed in a library. :) great!
