Life is about books

Guess life’s about books:
Better than an iPhone;
though still “unreal”,
at least they’re not virtual.

Some say it’s escape;
I strongly disagree.
If the book is any good,
it’s an undiscovered country

full of wonders and ideas
and new people and strange places.
And when I finally close the cover
I then understand life better.

And that is the whole purpose
of all reading and all breathing
and all thinking and all loving:
It’s to grow in understanding.
