Open Minded

September 16, 2008
By Jake Waugh, Stillwater, OK

As I sit, ready for what is to come;
to be an open book, ready to be written.
As the writer speaks aloud, my mind becomes
a dry sponge, soon to be soaked and fulfilled.

I walk away reading aloud what I've been written
for, as you follow the pages you start fill those short stories
to soon come.

Once you've finished the book, you've reached the end,
your life becomes a closed book, locked up forever.
Knowing your duty was finished, leaving a world behind,
knowing you helped write it, leaving it a better place.

The author's comments:
My name is Jake Waugh and I wrote this peice in mind of educators (or open minded if you will) I think it's important to educate others to succeed and have the confidence to take on the world.
