Carpe Diem!Seize the Day!(Poem)

Carpe Diem! Seize the day!

This gifted 24 hours, do not waste;

Opportunity is knocking, now is the time,

Answer now, do so in haste.

Tomorrow's not promised, guaranteed not,

The future uncertain, not sure;

Now's all you have, today's yours to own,

Muster courage to walk through that door.

Our children's children, and their children in turn,

Will reap the fruit of our decision now;

The difference, the change, choose to be,

Do not the loss of this moment allow.

Missed opportunities of yesterday,

Forever gone, irretrievable, lost;

Friend, fret not about what cant be changed,

Instead, of today, right now, make the most.

A hurting brother, is now needing joy,

A broken sister, requires a lift;

That word of healing lies in your heart,

That encouragement is yours to gift.

Look around, you shan't need to seek very far,

Opportunities for good, before you lay;

So difference-maker, world-changer rise up strong,

Carpe Diem! Seize the day!
