Greetings from the Philippines! Thanks for checking in! I wish all of you a blessed and joyful Wednesday!
You only live once and life is appallingly short. It might be distressing though,but once is truly enough if you’ll live it meaningfully,right? I hope you like this poem especially written for all of you.
Sands of Time
It is true that nothing lasts forever,
Even the pains that caused you weep
Will soon be over and disregarded.
The scars they left will soon fade away
Like a morning due in a summer day.
Your disappointments and losses
Will soon turn out to be insignificant,
And so the tears that have been dried.
Your fame,beauty, and temporal power
Will eventually be buried and forgotten.
Your success that once became important
Will soon be irrelevant and discounted
Like birds lose their wings and phrases.
Everything will perish whether you like it or not.
But how will you make your moments count?
Live your life the way it should be lived;
Stop living in despair,hatred, and regret;
Seize every passing minute and day instead
Like it is your last,like you own the universe.
Build lasting memories with your loved ones;
Do the things that will make you pleased
While you still have the chance and breath.
And before you go, try to leave behind you–
Sublime footprints on the sands of time.
