Books and the Meter of Life

By: TwentyOneTimelords


FREE WRITING

my life
started with books.
they gave me the world
they helped me see past
my small sense of reality
they guided my opinions
and
book
by
book
they made me who I am right now.
and with the books came
the overpowering urge to write my own
to contribute to the world
I love so much
to make a kid like me smile.
and so I read and write
my way through life
emulating and creating
devouring books hungrily
adding new words to my repertoire.
I suppose my life will end with books
maybe with some of mine
or maybe just with the ones I cherish
and cling to ‘til the end.


Peer Review

The simpleness of it. 'to make a kid like me smile.' The imagery in this is also great, and the format makes you want to read it from top to bottom multiple times. :) To me, the shorter the poem, the more readable, and you did a great job!


You really did a great job...I can relate well to this. 'devouring books hungrily / adding new words to my repertoire.' Really love these lines!
