Wednesday Never Came (For September 11th Victims)

Rating: 3.4

It is the fortune of poeple
that the shadows
of our futures do not
lie heavy
on our minds.

We go about
our lives with
no worry for the future
that lies in wait,

with its pain and sorrow.

I think that this is such a strong reminder of the love that we must try and share between our-selves, and I agree with Ernestine when she says that we must try and live without the fear, Love duncan X

They say never go to bed on a quarrel. Everytime someone goes out the door, we never know whether we will see them again. But one mustn't dwell on this, but something like the twin towers devastation makes one think deeply of how we live our lives. A beautifully written piece Scarlett, very thought provoking and emotional. Love Ernestine XXX

Touchingly beautiful. The same can be said for Sunday/Monday. Monday never came for those who were killed at Pearl Harbor. No less a vicious and infamous attack on a nation at peace. (Might want to review for punctuation & spelling - 'people', for example. LIKE I NEVER MAKE TYPOS, OF COURSE! (WINK!)

Solemn truth for all in this poem... Life and death both often take us by surprise. I will try, again, to live more mindfully with this reminder. Thank you for this (and for your wonderful book on the subject) . Love, Esther xxxxx

A sermon in a poem. Wonderful reminder never to put off what might lie heavily on us 'tomorrow'.
