Never Wait


If today you feel like running,
Do not stay sited doing nothing.
If tomorrow you feel like smiling,
Do not let anything make you grimace.
If then you feel like eating,
Do not let anyone tell you fat.
If then you feel like traveling,
Do not just forget and miss your flight.
If today you feel like doing something,
Do not wait and do it tomorrow,
Though by then
You might change your mind.

    Do today and now what you wish to do. Tomorrow who knows what calamity occurs and what you wish to do is not done. You put the age old wisdom in simple and beautiful words. (Report) Reply

And pays us but with earth and dust;
