Each and every day, we, humans, seek knowledge
Always pushing the limits and standing on the edge
Research, experiments and investigations
Curiosities are satisfied through explorations
In reading, I can do a lot of introspection.
Wisdom can be acquired in many ways
And, reading a book can definitely educate
It’s a simple solution to problems
Seems like a piece of cake—
The real road to progress
Various pages, I ate.
Adults are well-informed on how the world works
But, we, the youth, are immature and greenhorns
We need directions to guide us in our lives
Reading leads to different levels of good vibes
Where on Earth can these gems of ideas hide?
Those texts and manuscripts
Will never, ever die.
Of all genre
This is just what we need
Millennials and Gen Z’ers
Online stuffs are always available to read
Biographies and poems like this
Are now second fiddle
To social media blitz.
These are legacies of people from the past
Setting the tone for the present
Since future literacy will be cast
By reading on the history, essence and expressions
Of mistakes and success
We can breeze through time’s test
Reading might be a matter of life and death
Though it doesn’t mean that the fastest reader
Is simply the best
But, sharp reading comprehension might put you head and shoulders above the rest.
