Just a Novel

Anna Molloy


As people

we are

just like books

not judged from the inside

just on our looks

covers are seen

who knows what we contain

no one ever discovers

the stories

there to gain

one may come along

and open you up

but slam you shut

once again

without a second look

we each have a past

a story to tell

stay for a while

sit for a spell

some books are tugged on

rugged and torn

but the pages we have

can also be new

bright colors and shine

look deep inside

because we too

are quite fine

maybe we need

a bit of patience

to know what's on the inside

we each contain a story

we are just like books

so for now on

ask someone



how are they are doing

and no matter the answer

ask them

one small question
