The Book


My life is an open book.
Read it if you wish, read it if you dare.
But read it carefully I plead
Read it with a heart indeed
Do not just the cover you screen
The fancy and cheerful gleam
The interesting title is but a scheme
To mislead the proud and confuse the weak
Do not just the introduction you peruse
The short and concise brief
The quick summary is but a ruse
To hide the truth from those who only skim the news

Patience is a virtue you need
To appreciate the book for what it is
Time is a precious gift
Spent to understand the words that you read
So a sincere heart is required
To comprehend this book of mine
And reveal this mystery
that is the life of mine
