Reminisce


I remember waking up with expectations

Cautiously avoiding distractions

I remember having a promise to fulfill

Trying to measure up to fit the bill



I remember those blissful moments of the day

Smartly working to keep failure at bay

I remember not having two pennies to rub together

Struggling to get out of the mess one way or another



I remember those lustful romantic evenings

Beautified with intimate flings

I remember it was hard for me to let go

The pleasure of seeing you again, I had to forgo



I remember miserable nights of nightmares

Fighting with unknown forces in warfares

I remember seeing fog of death

Trying to snatch away my breath



I remember I was created to do good works

Making the world better for the young folks

I remember I made a pledge

To remain a sage

Poem of the Day

poet Christopher Marlowe

Black is the beauty of the brightest day,
The golden belle of heaven's eternal fire,
That danced with glory on the silver waves,
Now wants the fuel that inflamed his beams:
