Journey Through a Book

by Harshita Das aged 11

Every time I open a book
I go into a different land
My thoughts are blurred
My memory burned away
Like the pages I flip through
And I fall into a trance
Dazed, unable to put it down
I feel like a character
I feel their pain, their sorrow
I feel their righteousness
I sense their joyous laughter
They go past my emotions
Filling me with a strange desire
To laugh along
Warming my heart
And when my journey is over
I sigh and sit
For hours and hours
Wishing I was still there
In the different land
As a different person
