One day to ecstasy, one day to pain,
one dream inspired, one hope detained,
one heart accepted, one act deplored,
one love rejected, and one life restored.
One hour to misgivings, one minute to free,
one second to containment, one thought just to be,
one month to promotion, one week to fail,
one day to honour, just a moment to bail.
One mind in a quandary, one soul to explain,
one wish of resolution, one effort to remain,
one problem to solve, one heartache to bare,
one lover the focus, being selfless to care.
What future befalls us, each second of time,
presents us with choices, from pain to sublime,
the time like a mirror, of the soul to its core,
reveals of us truly, our essence and more.
And the myriad of emotions, we experience in life,
from the tears of despair, to the joy of what's right,
the honour of privilege, the humility of being poor,
the acceptance of all life, and with love to restore.
We are but a spark of divine pure light,
our expression through time, a divine gift of sight,
and all we can do is to consider our thoughts,
and to honour each breath, each action rewards.
