Licton Springs Review

My BookBy Will Tran

Every night before I sleep
Don’t judge because of what you see on the cover
what I am lies beneath and between the text
concealed in secrecy
locked inside the vault of my persona
at first glance I may seem no different
no starches or scuffs to make me stand out
but my pages are filled with history, stories, and poetry
speechless from expressing my inner thoughts
I sit alone while watching my surroundings change
collecting dust on my shoulders
that’s why I am a lonely soul
concealed inside the pages of my own book
waiting for someone to read
