Listen To Wake Up Call - Poem by Bernard F. Asuncion

A wake up call
Rises one from deep sleep;
Early in the morning,
With a promise to keep.

A wake up call
Rings an alarming sound;
It brings concerned caution,
Saving one from danger around.

A wake up call
Is an effective reminder;
It cures forgetfulness,
As we are all getting older.

A wake up call
May come from a bad day;
To turn the wrong event
Into right and positive way.

As the evening comes
To rest one's weary soul;
At the break of dawn,
Listen to wake up call.

    Everyone receives a wake up call in life at one time or another, it may be a silent warning or an effective reminder to correct something we have done wrong, making it a positive quality instead of a negative one. Your poem is definitely a wake up call to humanity, showing the path to peace and serenity. Loved this poem very much. Thank you for sharing it. RoseAnn (Report) Reply
