A BOOK

A book is just a book unless it’s opened…

’til then we know not on what adventure it will take us.

Will it make us laugh…

or cry…

or shudder with emotion?

Will it reach deep into our souls…

Will it awake us?

 

There is one truth about a book that I can offer,

one certainty…

one fact to be proposed:

a book has no capability to stir our imagination…

no power to inspire…

when it is closed.

 

A mind is just a mind unless it’s opened…

‘till then we know not on what adventure it will take us.

Will it show us how to love

to hope…

to dream?

Will it reach into our heart and soul,

and make them gleam.

 

There is one truth about a mind that I can offer,

one certainty…one fact to be proposed… 

a mind has no capability for compassion

no power to inspire…

 

when it is closed.
