Reading, why do we read?

Hey everyone,

This is my attempt at writing a poem.


Reading, why do we read?

Is it for the books, for its knowledge that we should seek?

Why are we seeing knowledge?

Is it to learn about ourselves more?

Why are we learning about ourselves? Is it to avoid the mistakes that we make?

Why are we making mistakes? Is it the lack of knowledge?

Reading, why do we read?

Is it for the escape thay it provide?

What are we escaping from? Is it from the reality?

Why are we escaping reality? Is it to stay ignorant?

Why do we want to be ignorant? Is it because we are afraid?

How do we stop being afraid? By gaining knowledge?

How can we gain knowledge, banish this cursed ignorance?

By overcoming our fears and start reading right?

How to and what should we read? By choosing to read about those that we are afraid about, by chosing those that we wanted to change.

Why should we change?

For a better future.

And the path towards better future is by asking why should I read this book, what change that I am expecting from this book, read the book and then implement it into your life.


I hope I am able to convey my thoughts on reading. Please comment about the change you wanted your life and what you are going to read to implement that change below.

I am going to read The 5 second Rule by Mel Robbins, to stop procastinating and start doing things that I love, to move closer towards my goal everyday.

Until Next Time,

Nagendra Kumar Yadav T.
