Today – A Inspiration Poem
The sun is rising.
Open your eyes to the possibility of a new life
That waits for you upon the horizon.
Let the aroma of fresh brewed coffee stir you in bed
And lead you from where dreams remain fixed in your head
To where they are transfigured in motion through action.
Today we set course for the future;
We throw all past failures overboard
And load our cargo of dormant potential in the hold.
Today we set sail to new destinations
We’ve been planning for years,
But never had the courage to leave the comfort of familiar harbors.
Today we become masters over our inner self
And shed the shackles of slavery,
No longer submitting to the will of our weaknesses.
Today is the first day of your new life –
Reborn, awoken, reformed into the image
You’ve always desired and known you’re capable of.
Today will find us working
And not bewildered by fear or past distractions.
We will set course on a path of purposeful, rigorous action.
Today we set sail for the future,
Which does not come to us,
But we confidently create and seek.
Today is the only day of your life that’s guaranteed.
So pull yourself up by your bootstraps.
Smile, don’t fret. Let’s make it one for the ages.
