It's funny how those five letters

Hold the power to transport you to another world


The natural fragrance that overwhelms the senses as you turn the page

The soft wisp of air

That awaken small goose bumps in their path


A small creation that holds the power to change our world

A little fragment of our minds that hold the key to revolutionize humanity


A way for a total stranger to get their ideas across to the world

A way to speak out from the confined walls of their cells


Dots of ink

Scrawled across pure sheets of white

Rewriting our world

Changing us inside out

Transporting its reader into someplace else

That is the power of books

That is the power of the five letter word
