My books are my retreat

I run to them to find solace

In forgetting my worries and problems

Refreshing my soul to find space

Without books I would have felt lost

Finding the world a terrible place


My retreat exists within myself

Taking refuge when the need arise

Calming myself to energize

And my mind to revitalize

(Sheen-December 2016)
