Daily missive for Wednesday the 10th of September.~by Peter Forster



Daily missive for Wednesday the 10th of September.

Look closer,
And you will see
What you have missed.
Listen and you will hear
The slightest sound.
Wait until you find
An answer.
Until you find no more.

It sounds so easy
Each phrase
Short and simple,
Seems just right,
But look
A little closer,
At the message
You are given
When the onus
For all
This world’s ills
Is laid on you.

Do you see
And hear the meaning?
Have you learned
The lesson given,
Off by heart?
Of a life
And situation,
Words like this,
Are nothing
But a comfort,
A blanket,
Thinly spread,
To cover all occasions,
And however bland,
Really mean,
The future,
For all it’s worth,
Lies in your hands.
So get it right.


  1. Awesome poem.
