For The Love Of Reading – A Free Verse Poem


Read and Write

to live a thousand lives,

wishing you could be

in a bit of each,


never to realize that

yours is more marvelous

than any other,


harshly judged,

for being a lonesome,

single experience,

which could –

of course –

never compare to

the miracle of infinite possibilities,


though it never had to,

because it’s yours alone,

and you Read and Write,

to live the rest.
