The Book That Keeps Me Company

I’d take only a book
The one with all my memories
With only one look
You could see all of my miseries

Happiness and sadness
I’ve been through it all
It’s almost a madness
I was always so small

My eyes used to hold tears
Yet now they’re clear as the midnight sky
What happened to all my fears
I must’ve told them goodbye

In my pictures today
I’m cool, calm, and collective
Maybe if I stay on this highway
I could reach my perspective

My book would keep me company
In the loneliness of this desert
I wouldn’t need money
That caused me nothing but hurt
 

This poem is about: 
Me

I wrote this poem for the one thing you'd take with you on a deserted island. I chose my photo album that I've had ever since I was a little girl so I would never forget where I came from. I've had struggles on this great journey like many others which is something I'd never want to forget. I think this would be the best thing to take with me since it shows my character and it's the one thing that's always brought me great joy!
