Possibilities

I hope one day I write a book worthy of the title banned. 

It’ll mean I’ve made people uncomfortable

     that my words encouraged thought

          that there were conversations about differing viewpoints.

It’ll mean my book is an agent of change.

Perhaps my aspirations are too lofty, but ponder this:

Why do we write if not to influence others?

Why do we read if not to learn other ideas?

To all the banned books out there, thank you for making me think and for opening my eyes to new possibilities.
