I walk into a bookshop and I look for the latest bestseller,
It's been reviewed on Oprah and I've heard it's great.
I find it and I buy it,
 
I take it home and relax on the couch to read it.
Oh no! Why didn’t I read the blurb?!
The horror! It’s a self-help book.
 
I don’t need one of those.
I know how to help myself thank you very much.
But I’m curious and start to read it.
 
Chapter 1: You are special.
Thanks I know that already,
My mom wouldn’t have kept me if I wasn’t.
 
I skip ahead to chapter 4:
Realizing you’re a genius.
Well really, who’d have guessed?
I thought you had to be to pass grade 1.
 
Books are for reading yes;
But I prefer to learn to live from life,
Not from within the pages of a book.
