    lately my backs hurt
    must be to much lifting
    lately my minds gone
    much be to much drifting
    in my younger years i feel the pain
    of advancing age
    it must be my mind wandering
    as i turn each lonely page
    the dry crispness of the paper
    is course against my finger
    and the depth of the authors words
    in my mind they haunt and linger
    i hear the volume crack
    is i bend back upon the spine
    i prop my feet upon a table
    for the words i find divine
    the story unfolds with twist and turns
    and sarrows i could not have guessed
    and as i read about this mans life
    my heart aches in my breast
    so much pain and sarrow he endured
    but he lived with out fear
    and as i read about his death
    my nose burns and i shed a tear
    i close this book with a sad goodbye
    though its etched with in my thoughts
    ill remeber tom for like our savior
    with his life freedom he bought

      it was alright a little general for my liking but I do see what you were going for, and you got there I mean with The whole Uncle Tom and the Cabin deal, I see the connection and how you were effected by the book--good bok btw. You have a few typos like sarrow-sorrow and is --as--a few like that but I may even be wrong...If you used a few more descriptions of what you were saying-for instance his fear--well.......what fear and so on....also the last two ine sare shakey but these are my opinions and I am barely right so take em how you see fit.
