The sands of time like deserts wide,
keep moving 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 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.
