So if you read, you will lead
And help others, who are in need,
All these deeds will make you succeed
Hence you will always intercede, concede and proceed,
without any conceit.
Since you have succeeded you will be loaded with epithets,
Hence you will coruscate,
No need to go to an anchoret for an amulet to ameliorate,
Because you will soon acquire an unique feature to ooze out mellifluence,
This will be your asset.
Reading, writing makes a person mentally healthy and flexible,
And so, if you are upset you will not roar,
But remain calm, pleasant as a musing priest,
Hence no drop in the Geist,
Like a funambulist.
Reading makes your occult pulchritude spirit to bubble with enthusiasm,
You create your own world,
A WORLD OF CREATION,
A place which is free from tension,
Will help you to achieve your mission and vision
Without any exhaustion.
This world of books will improve your conation,
So that you become a PHERSON,
Hence, there is no attrition,
No need to drink to drown your contrition,
Which in turn sharpens your intuition.
Books increases your concentration but decreases affliction,
Activates and teaches you ‘within’ the things you should opt for,
So that you can explore, outscore and soar,
And hence you will find millions at your door to adore.
This is also a world of disillusion,
Increases your capacity to sustain and ascertain
And not to arraign,
And so your efforts will never go in vain.
This world of books is very spacious,
You will neither become mendacious nor meretricious,
This in turn, will keep all your activities conspicuous,
And so you will find everyone around you slowly becoming
Magnanimous and hilarious.
