I am a book
With a once upon a time
And an ever after
Lined with so many others
In the library of Uncertainty
Under the section of Life
So many pages to turn
So many to read
Some are full of images
Just as a children’s book
To be easily understood
Others, one might wish
I was written in Layman’s language
But the words that are
They are just me.
Some pages will be blank
That is where I get lost
And even I don’t understand myself
A time of hiding in my shell
But don’t be discouraged
To keep on turning the leaves
Of my life
There are more
Which are more legible
Interesting and yet some boring
Pages to be read, of course,
Depending on the eye of the beholder
The reader
Yet I am like a good book
That seems to drag on
Yet you do not want to let go
My only wish is that
With all of modern technology
I will not be forgotten
Left out of the Library
In the section of Life
With the title “Me”
Full of dust
Or just burned at the stake
With only ashes
To be a reminder that I was once
Only an antiquated book
Next to others
Living on a shelf
Under the silly section
Called Life.
I wish to be a treasure
A relic
A valued antique
At least in the library of
My friends
My family
My children’s children’s
I would like that to be my
Ever After.

Artist's Description

I was not really thinking nor reflecting on something or life. And suddenly out of nowhere I just had to sit down and let my pen take control.
Yesterday and today this poem took new meaning for me, for our talented Alenka and Sergei Rukavishnikov are doing a special collection of works. and thought that this poem that speaks of how we should treat every individual just as special and a treasure as a valuable book.I strongly recommend you to take a look into both of their profiles for they are amazing.
