"The reader Inside Of me"

Updated on August 13, 2013

"The Reader Inside Of Me"

I thought of this poem one day and decided to share it .
I thought of this poem one day and decided to share it .
For those of you who like to read, there is also a reader inside you as well.
For those of you who like to read, there is also a reader inside you as well.

"The Reader Indside Of Me''

I started from the beginning to the very end

the reader inside of me has always been my friend

Our adventurous journey started a long,long time ago

Where will it end , only the reader inside of me will know.

We have visited many, many libraries over the years

Some of the many books we read calm our fears

The reader inside of me, started when I was very young

It helped me achieve fantastic knowledge and adventurous fun.

The reader inside of me, sought after and searched for many books

No matter how much time it took.

When I was in my teens, the reader inside of me, favored the romance scene

We later learned that it was only a theme.

We finally grew into self help books

Which showed us how to, fish, sew and cook.

The reader inside me, showed me the wisdom and knowledge of my spirituality

That the continuous reading was only a technicality.

The spirit inside of me, kept my life from being ho-hum,bored and dumb

It showed me how reading and writing was so much fun.

The reader inside of me, gives me the desire to diligently seek the truth

And create extra wisdom and knowledge to booth.

      Here I am again. I bookmarked this when I read it the first time. I have enjoyed and appreciated this hub even more the second time.

      I love the "reader inside" and how you give life and gratitude for that part of you.

      Thank you, you talented lady! (voted up again :)

      CO,

      I think it's great that the reader inside of you turned into the writer that the reader inside of me reads. Thanks for a wonderful post!

      Hi Benny it would be great if more go the same way as you have here listen and read their innner reader, but so many just want to go their own ways and not take any notice of the reader inside.

      I pray for more good writes from you this new year

      I think I share much of this. It did take a teacher in about the fourth grade to encourage the habit.
