Numbered

Updated on March 3, 2011

Our days are numbered

from the moment of birth

by the Master Designer of man.

The length of our journey

is, for each, an unknown.

It behooves us live well while we can.


Bear no resentments.

Nurse not a grudge.

For Time denies pause in the end.

Love with the passion

The Master inspires,

For no man will Destiny bend.


Neither fear nor regrets

Must take hostage the NOW.

They cast darkness that renders one blind.

Stop to give thanks for

The gifts that Life brings.

Here Grace to endure is the find.


Withhold not compassion.

Speak not harsh words.

For that which we say

Outlives Time.

Words can inspire or

diminish a soul,

to bless or engender great crime.


Let actions reflect

that which Honesty gives.

Let kindness be ever the rule.

For the bread that we cast

On the waters we sail

Is but squandered, if cast by the fool.


Yes, our days are numbered

From the moment of birth

by the Master Designer of man.

The length of our journey

is for each an unknown.

It behooves us live well while we can!
