Today

In our haste for Tomorrow
We forget the lessons of the past,
So we repeat the mistakes
of yesterday.

In our foolishness,
We ignore the warning of the Past,
so the future creeps in
with a stamp of chaotic reality.

In our indolence,
We neglect the duties of Today,
So tomorrow comes
to find us unprepared.

In our peevishness,
We strain for Tomorrow.
so Today ebbs with a soft cry
of dissatisfaction.

Be wise!
Learn from the past,
Fulfill the needs of today,
And hope for tomorrow.
