Written for: Poets United Midweek Motif~Carpe Diem/Seize The Day (posted by Sumana)
Today’s motif prompts to write about cherishing each moment, making most of the golden chance, seizing the day, living as best and fully as possible.
Remembering Jean-Paul Sartre in this connection: ‘There is only one day left, always starting over; it is given to us at dawn, and taken away from us at dusk’.
“I held a moment in my hand, brilliant as a star, fragile as a flower, a tiny sliver of one hour. I dropped it carelessly. Ah! I didn’t know I held opportunity.” — Hazel Lee
Tomorrow promises to be–
On the other hand,
if today is too terrible to bear,
keep the promise of tomorrow.
