Reading - Poem by Maurice Dewberry

Each day I read I feel so proud
I'm not going to whisper, I'm saying it out loud
Reading so many different books
Has given me a perfect good outlook.
To reach out for a better understanding
Without the rough and harsh demanding
Reading a chapter each day and night
Makes understanding seem just right
Giving attention in order to hear
Preventing the feeling of any fear
Adjusting myself to reach my stride
So I'll always feel secure with pride
