This is the beginning of a new day ...
I have been given me this day
To use as I will.
I can waste it ... or use it for good,
But what I do today is important
Because I am exchanging
A day of my life for it!
When tomorrow comes,
This day will be gone forever,
Leaving in its place
Something that I have traded for it.
I want it to be gain ... and not loss;
Good ... and not evil;
Success ... and not failure;
In order that I shall not regret
The price that I have paid for it.
I will try just for today,
For you never fail ...
Until you stop trying.
