The Story

 

we hold the book so close to our hearts

the one we’ve read so many times

the one we’ve shared so many times

the one come down from heaven

 

and what a tale of man and spirit

exists between those covers thick

thin pages form ages of timeless wisdom

no illusions just stark naked truths

 

but how often that book collects dust

on a shelf that nobody will ever dare touch

while we search for the answers

in things with no promise like the promise

at the end of that book.
