Today - A Poem

Updated on October 19, 2014

Today

Today is the tomorrow we worried about yesterday,

Everything will now come your way,

He who climbs a ladder must begin at the first step,

Action speaks nothing without motive.


Everything will now come your way,

The beginning of wisdom is to desire it,

Actions speaks nothing without motive,

Become who you really are.


The beginning of wisdom is to desire it,

Pick a path with heart,

Become who you really are,

Righteousness will lead to new patterns.


Pick a path with heart,

Before you can be reborn you must die,

Righteousness will lead to new patterns,

Your greatest battle is with yourself.


Before you can be reborn you must die,

He who climbs a ladder must begin at the first step,

Your greatest battle is with yourself,

Today is the tomorrow we worried about yesterday.

      There is obviously much wisdom in the humble fortune cookie. Cleverly done. Voted up all the way.
