Live Only Today


We only have today

Which one is someday

We are not sure of the next day.....

Get up and live,

Live only today.

Break free from the rest

Get out of your cacoon nest,

Let go what holds you to rest

Stand up and give your best.

We have only today.

Live only today!

Have you thought of exploring love?

Or you are scared of being hurt?

Or the deep cut of the emotion blade,

Don't let the sun fade,

And let nothing unsaid,

We only have today

So live only today.

A great message Winnie and one we should all heed. Live each day as if it is your last. The past has gone and we cannot control the future so live in the present.

Well said. All you have is the present - this moment.

Great advice! I believe one should make the most of what life brings.

Sometimes this is difficult to do, but one never knows when his days will end.

Thanks for sharing.

We never know what tomorrow may bring. Some people waste their whole life worrying about tomorrow and forget to live today. A nice message in this poem, Winnie.
