{poetry} A New Day

The sun sets and rises again.
A new day.
You pray for strength to get through
The next 24 hours
Not knowing what’s going to happen within
The next 10 seconds.
They say, “Live each day as your last.”
I’m beginning to see the truth in that.
Anything can happen to anyone.
Nothing is certain.
Be grateful.
Leave selfishness at the door.
Love like you’ve never loved.
Any day can be your last.
Don’t waste time.
Tell people how you feel.
Don’t hold back.
Find courage.
Be patient.
Be thankful you’re alive.

{poetry} Blame

Blaming others for your own downfalls is pathetic.
Denial is a problem.
Drama is overrated and will be there
Regardless of whether you want it or not.

Words are just words and don’t mean
Anything unless they’re put into action. Fate is the cornerstone and
Timing is everything.
But do we really have “all the time in the world”?

The clock is ticking.
Lives are lost and new ones are created.
Every second that passes is either one
Lost or one spent
Wisely.

Don’t waste it. Appreciate it.
Look inside yourself. Find the good.
Don’t deny yourself the ability to be powerful.
Don’t be pathetic.
