Rookie (19 February 1984 / Johannesburg)

The Route


In the days of my adolescence,
Often had I thought about the years that follow,
For those days were filled with hopes and dreams,
And as I stand here, hardly passed the bloom of youth,
Times passing has certainly misled those dreams,
I’ve come to live in a life I did not foretell,
A life not carefully planned could cause regret,
Regrets for not taking roads that could have altered today’s course,
I sit at my desk and wonder what lies ahead,
Could I plan meticulously my future still?
Indeed it can be done,
Let me get up, for today I start.

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:
