I am one, I am me,
I can be whatever I wish to be.
Upon the dragon’s wings I can soar,
Or ride upon a rainbow after a down pour.
Upon a thunderous night I can shiver in fear.
Close my eyes and dream my way out of here.
The tears of sadness I wish to send them away.
My imagination works overtime every day.
Monsters creep into the shadows of night,
Silently I move shivering in fright.
Try to escape, my book I find,
My safe haven, I jump inside
I am one with a book, new worlds I live,
Many places, many sights, so much to give.
Come with me, new worlds to explore,
reading gives me a life I long for
