I Am Like A Book On The Top Shel


I am like a book on the top shelf
Full of words that feel will forever be unheard
Never fully opened and read
A lost story meant to be heard
Scanned upon the title on my spine
Judged by the words that lay there
Onlookers don't usually see me
I'm tucked away on my oh too comfortable shelf
They see the other though
The attention grabbing books that come eye level
They Never see me
I sit on my shelf and watch the world
Watch as it goes by
Never watched back
Sometimes I want to be that book they first see
The book written so people will buy it
But my words are greater than an economic market
I hold a story that is my own
And will wait patiently till they are ready to hear it.
