Be happy in the present.

The future will come,

The past is gone,

If you think ahead,

Or dwell on what was,

You’ll miss the now,

And miss your best.


Be happy in the present.

Memories ready to be made,

Understand what is,

Rather than what was,

Or what could be,

Manipulate your mind,

Instead of your time.


Understand yourself before others.

Exercise your body,

To live a life of health,

Exercise your mind,

To building upon a power,

Educate yourself,

And take your time.


Teach others to love themselves.

Take what you learn,

And share it generously,

Open their eyes,

To what you now see,

Treasure what is,

And help others find theirs.
