Those words, they make me

I sailed the seas with Odysseus
Went with the Famous Five on adventures
Never imagined I would fly a broom
Or see the world compressed in a room

Praying for Dant├ęs, whispering - go, go go…
Relishing revenge with the Count of Monte Cristo
Adoring Atticus and admiring Rhett
Scorning Anna and forgiving Scarlett

Picking oranges with Ma and Tom Joad
Driving the truck on an endless road
Listening to John Galt and Rearden
Vision and steel, these intriguing men

Lying curled up, weeping for Hassan
Will Sohrab smile again; can Amir be forgiven
‘There’s a way to be good again’ – a haunting question
‘For you a thousand times over’ – such a classic expression

Love and sacrifice, I lived it all
War and peace, I saw it all
Magic and adventure, they mesmerized me
Fiction and Fantasy, they enthralled me

Those writers, they wrote for me
Those stories, they were all made up by me
Those books, they made me
Those words, they make me

Those books, they made me
Those words, they make me
