A Day To Remember - Poem by Walterrean Salley

Today should be remembered—
Not only for its feat,
But there's no other like it;
And thus, it is unique.

It's not for sounding trumpets.
Or neon flashing signs.
Nor for famed inaugurals,
Or parades of great design.

Today has it's own style,
And goes at its own pace.
Would it win a banner
Were it in a race?

Perhaps not. But it's not
For great numbers—
But for its place in history,
Today should be remembered.

Topic(s) of this poem: celebration, day, remembrance

    A great poem, I truly enjoyed it. We should try and live each day as if
    it were our last. What we have done (past) . What we are doing (present) .
    What we are about to do (future) . Appreciate this well written work!
