Books! They are magical!
Black letters on a white page
Till you read them
And then doors open, journeys begin
Travel through cultures and traditions.
Dive into the past, catch a glimps of the future
Shatter some myths and tear down a few walls.
Learn a new language,
Learn two... learn three.
Meet saints and warriors,
Scientists and wizards,
Someone you feel like you know,
Someone you thought you’d never know.
Read... till no strangers remain,
Go beyond your story,
Open a book,
Open your arms,
Your heart, your mind.
