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.
