As I Open A Book And Turn The Pages

As I open a book

And turn the pages,

I walk into lives of writers

Whose word engages.

As I intake soul food

And feel spiritually good,

I cannot help beaming

About some pleasant screaming.

As I scan the news online

To seek extra fun,

I warn myself

To be easy on stuff such as a elf.

As I play a game

That carries my name,

I am careful

Not to be too tame.

As I feel happy and able.

I mean nil harm to those who feel miserable.

Money shall not be everything

In a healthy living,

Harvest what one sows,

That’s how one grows.

Happy Wednesday!

The book we open starts our life
In between the good is the bad with strife
It is up to us to pick our feet
And not let adversity get give us defeat
So page by page it will be read
But while you are in it it still goes str8 ahead

Thank you Jingle. I especially appreciate one of the first lines: "I walk into the lives of writers." That you do for sure. With the risk of repeating myself once too often: thanks for what you are doing. - Bill
