I Bought a Book Today

I bought a book today
And dived beneath its skirts
It took my mind away
And shook it till it hurt
It took my preconceptions
And turned them outside in
There was not one exception
It found out all my sins

Today I bought a book
With little expectation
My certainties it shook
And brought me complication
The words the author found
Expressed each small emotion
And brought my mind around
Heartbreak and devotion

I bought a book today
Wherein my soul left earth
There is no more to say
Except that books have worth
