In Turn


Let me sketch my thoughts on the sand
Watch as the waves destroy
Let me close my eyes for a while
Hear the best moments pass by
Let me know what it is to be dead
To enjoy being alive
Let me justify my existence
By doing something worthwhile
Let me find the difference
My life is supposed to make
Let me be a coward
Prepare for risks I need to take
Let me do things my way
Let me fail repeatedly and learn
Let me watch success go by
I will know it all, in turn

Poem of the Day

poet Wilfred Owen

All sounds have been as music to my listening:
Pacific lamentations of slow bells,
The crunch of boots on blue snow rosy-glistening,
Shuffle of autumn leaves; and all farewells:
