Rated: E · Other · Other · #2265303
My early life was spent engrossed in reading.
Here, my friend, am I.

From Plain City Ohio

I'm born and passing by.

I am from here.

I am from there.

I am from everywhere.

The books I read

Were lives I led.

Children's books, encyclopedias

Choose your own adventure.

These were my medias.

Autobiography, dictionary.

Who do you want to be?

Textbooks. Foundation. Robbie.

Hari seldon is part of me.

741. Was fun 100s were heavy.

Always had a thanks for dewey.

All these things led to me.

I cannot enumerate the hours spent.

In my Imaginary reading tent.

The fullness of life I have felt

From all the words I've been dealt.

I lived a life of learning from the

Millions of mistakes of others

Written down.

Of what was best and what was worst

Because they stood out on their own.

And still to this day I read as I can.

To learn even more from my fellow man.
