Speak – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

“There is no time to leave important words unsaid.” Paulo Coelho


For every frontier
there'll be a dozen more we'll miss,
we've conceded flights for nature,
no seven wonders for us,
but no matter
we have a coffee table covered in 
vicarious travel experiences just for us,
and though we have our trailer
we know we'll never cover the lot,
of shelves and books there's never 
enough time, or films to watch,
in the end none will matter,
of all that is missed,
the only regrets
will be our words not said.
