figure in book_after

She boarded the bus
She hopped onto the streetcar
She took the flight
She jumped on the broom ready to fly

Each book she breathed in
Was a journey a new
Each book she opened
Brought her travelores from afar

Unknowingly so her father gave her a life boat
A life jacket to protect her from the treacherous waves of life
A breath of fresh air when she was down under
A bottle of blood when she had drained hers

Each day she broke free from societal chains
As she leafed through pages and traversed
She bid adieu to norms and swam under currents
She lived through them

They were her best friends
Loyal as loyal could be
They were her only companions
Caring as caring could be
