What Shall We Do With This Day?

What shall we do with this day?

Sculpt it from the

moment you get up,
squeeze every minute

from its hours,
wring them out completely
and taste their essence.

They are sweet

and intoxicating
and full of promises
if you devour life,
before it devours you.

There are flowers

to pick and inhale,
babies to smile at

and make laugh,
what simple and

perfect joy is this
to bend tiny lips

into a laugh.

Hearts to warm,

and loves to pursue
like butterflies with

the net of our heart,
watch them flutter inside us
when love spreads it's wings.

Demand peace in every

human way possible,
stand tall and fight for
the preservation of life,
what is more noble

than to battle the evil
of men's hatred

towards each other,
deny rights to all those
who promote

war mongering
and the control of

others through force
no matter what the cost,

elect wiser heads
who seek to find

other avenues
to bring about

change and hope
in the march towards

temporal peace.

Work, and work well,

and contribute tiny amounts
of productivity that help

keep the world in order,
putting cash in your pockets

to delight others
who have offerings to sell.

Acknowledge nature,

and strive to protect it
from all of man's

careless abuse.

Pray for those

who have lost the day
or wasted it into nothing

more then a burden
Each sun will never

return the same,
each moon will always

beam on a new dream,
seize it all and live

voraciously while you can
for tomorrow we are but dust.....

and from that arises

only particles that smother
all the yesterdays

we once knew.
