People are like books

People are like

books stacked on library shelves

The spines a thousand different colors tucked next to each other

side by side by side

Some are torn and worn with age

hurt and loved a thousand reads over

Others are brand new, slipped onto shelves

Pages crisp and clean, bindings stiff and uncracked

People are like books stacked on library shelves

They tell a different story–each rich and deep

Stories of adventure, humor, romance, mystery, sadness, lonely, bravery, love, magic, history, future, poetry, music, science,               death, life. Page after page after page of living.

And each book waits

waits to be lifted off the shelf,

and read

and understood

and loved

People are like books stacked on library shelves

Always hoping that to one, perhaps they are a literary masterpiece
