Will I Be a Book One Day?
Will I be a book one day?
I'd like to be a leather bound one
With creamy paper
I'd like the book to talk
About the friends who kept me alive
I'd like it to tell the story of me and my dog
I'd like a child to get lost in it
I'd like an adult to smile reading it
Most of all, I'd like it to still be on a shelf
After Ragnarok has come
I'd like the books we read
To find their way into libraries
Where mice roam
I'd like the world to step back from texting
And start reading again
For when I was a boy, I read a book
And got lost
And nowadays I hate it
When someone tries to find me
When I don't want to be found
