Colourful world


Life can sometimes seem drab and grey
Stuck in the rut that’s everyday
All it needs is a fresh coat or two
Something adventurous, something new

Going to work early, coming home late
Hitting the gym to lose that excess weight
Cooking dinners and lunches morn and night
Paying yet another bill with no end in sight

Catch up with friends to share updates
It’s the same old story, same monotonous fate
While adventures are waiting, monies are a-few
Life is at a crossroads, so what do you do?

Immerse yourself in lands of wonder
The lives of others and all their blunders
Rain or shine, your mind they’ll hook
As you surrender to pages in a book

Your life will still be the same old routine
But living through books means a different scene
Stories and words will capture your heart
Each book feeling like a colourful new start
