The sands of time like deserts wide
keep holding on – no rewind.
Spread across eternity
the future holds uncertainty.
Embrace your “now”…that’s all there is
refuse it though and cease to live.
Stop holding back your destiny
grab hold this day and be set free.
Live with your heart – embrace your core
one small step then reach for more.
Our thoughts create our destiny
Trust and Believe – then you will see.
It takes some Faith and Patience too
but then rewards will come to you.
Faith is not something you see
Believe it First so it can be.
The eyes can see the shallow plains
but with the heart see what remains.
This life we know is just a blink
It’s not as serious as you may think.
Live each day like it’s your last
It’s what’s here now…don’t look back.
