I Seek, I Find, I Live…
I seek a treasure, mighty fine
among these many canyons.
I pull a book
and see the top,
then push it right back in.
The call to read,
it fails me here.
This truth is not for me.
Again I seek and this I find, it's fiction, yes, but true
unto my heart, my soul, my mind, it's true, and real, and me.
I read and soar,
above the clouds.
I swim and learn and see.
For far within my mind there lies
the majesty of fantasy
and, oh! It is divine.
I read all day, all night, 'til morn
and live another life.
I dream of dragons, spells, and wands
as I take part in mind's delight
to fantasize a life so far,
exciting and creative.
And when all's said and done this day
I rejoice, for I have lived.
I return my book to shelves so small that hold so much emotion;
that hold my precious treasures.
And so I seek once more, you see,
the hunt persists and I must heed the call.
