Depending on Words and Stories and Books


Ever since I was little,
Words are things I know I can rely on.
Books don’t say mean things or hit me
Books don’t have superiority complexes and put me down
They don’t call me names
They’re always around when I need them
They only expect me to spend time with them when I can.
I don’t have to make an appointment
All these books are no waiting.
I’m never alone with my nose stuck in a book.


About lana1967

I'm a Southern girl at heart who wants to build a community of people who believe they can change the world with words like "love" and "freedom" when they become more than words, but actions in our work and our daily lives.
