The Poem contains 9 clues
Hidden within 6 stanzas
Forrest has said the clues will lead you to the chest and hints
will help you find the clues
Think about this, if the nine clues were actually nine lines in the poem,
There would be no need for any hints. The word “contains” means to
Hold within or to conceal, so when Forrest says “The poem contains
nine clues” it means, the poem holds the secret to the nine clues.
The poem is just hinting at what the nine clues really are.
