book of knowledge

Ever since I can remember I have known these books. They used to live in the bottom or a linen closet with some Reader's Digest books that keept them company. As soon as I knew how to read I would hide in that closet with a small light flip through the pages and marvel at the things in the world. I decided that I would read these books from A-Z I so that I would be smart. But each time I tried I only ever got as far as A.

When I grew up and left home I took the books with me and day when I have time I will read them all — and then finally I will be smart.
