A poem dedicated to all the readers out there. 

I am a Reader 

Yes, I read books 

But there is more too 

I read people 

And the places 

Not palms though 

But I read faces 
I read the emotions 

Creeping in our minds 

And situations 

Of various kinds 


Things and creatures 

Behaviour and characters 

I’ve read them all 

I read the signs 

And look for omens 

Not just in between the lines 

But I read to discover 

The hidden 

I read even what’s 

Not written 

I read to mingle 

With the world 

I read lying alone 

In my bed, curled 


I read to discern 
I read and I learn. 

-Kiran
