I Still Believe In Us

I still believe in us
Not in what we were
But what we are
Not in what we could have been
But what we can be

I still believe in us
Not in fanciful dreams
But tough reality
Not in promises of ever after
But here and now

I still believe in us
Not in discarding the past
But remembering it clearly
Not in guessing the future
But creating it daily

Seize the Day: Favourite Inspirational Poems

This creative collection, now in its 3rd edition, brings together favourite inspirational poems by Wayne Visser. The anthology takes us on a journey through the peaks and troughs of life, celebrating the indomitable human spirit.. It includes many old favourites like “Poets Must Be” and “Chasing the Blue”, as well as brand new poems like “The Writer” and “Making Ripples”. Sages through the ages wisely say: / Carpe Diem – seize the dawning day / Oh, would that I could assuage that thirst / But the day conspires to seize me first! / With the hurry and scurry / Of home’s frantic flurry / And the hustle and bustle / Of work’s tangled tussle. Buy the paper book / Buy the e-book.
