Remember Reader

Remember, Reader, through what lies ahead,
open mind is insufficient, heart
sends signals that were best not kept apart,
from echoes soothing soul whose hopes have bled.
Remember, Reader, what’s within your head
offers much, but much remains to chart.
Unsealing source, sound depths of feeling, start
bending self, end solitude’s harsh bread.
Remember, Reader, one should share instead
of keeping council close. The apple-cart
needs overturning, learning there’s a part
essential of potential still unread.
Rise beyond brakes, self-inflicted tomb,
break out and flout convention’s sterile doom!

Remember, Reader, page by page one learns
Experience that oil's mind's engine rods,
Memory enhanced until sad sods
Enter 'obituary is all one earns'.
Much fuss, much dust, for stage by stage one yearns
Better things as discontent's 'I pods'
Efface the trace of past possessions, Gods
Reminded to reward, goal brightly burns.
REmember, Reader, cage by cage one spurns
Making ends meet means, life homewards plods
EMerging through enlightenment, square quads
By round poles pierced as soul to truth returns.
Errors through experience are cured
Rewarding travel's travails, rest assured.

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
