"Fair means that everybody gets what they need and the only way to get what you need is to make that happen yourself." Rick Riordan

Lands long lost are suddenly found,
Mysteries of the earth are slowly unwound,
Imagination in pages all around,
With places in which I can be me,
The cage I am in requires a key
So it looks to be books,
That will set me free.

I wrote this for an English class last year and was hoping someone could critique it for me.

“Wednesdays are limbo days. Monday is the beginning of the week, Tuesday is getting used to it, Thursday is looking forward to Friday and Friday is getting ready for the weekend. Wednesdays aren’t really anything in particular. They’re just there.”

Wow, I love this. Five stars from me!

I love this because I can totally relate to it. I love immersing myself in books and they really do set me free when everything around me is confining me. Books are like magical places to escape to. I like this poem.
