The “I Will Live Today” Poem
I will not say “perhaps, one day…”
I will not put my dreams on delay.
I will not concern myself with what others say.
I will not retreat today.
I will not languish in the past
or concern myself with events yet to pass.
I will not condemn myself to meaningless tasks.
I will not let the joy of this moment pass.
For in this moment, many lives will pass
and the breath some take will be their last.
I will free myself from my self-constructed prison.
I will summon from within myself courage and determination.
I will abandon fear, worry, and hate
and focus my energy on what I can create.
I will take action, I will act fast.
I will live today as if it were my last.
Poetry is not one of my stronger points, but I wrote the above from the heart. If you have some lines you’d like to add, please feel free to append!
