How Different The World Would Be


if we could only know
what tomorrow holds
and if we could measure the next tomorrow.

Early in the morning
when the sun appears
we want to question life
and we want to put life into us.

Let us delve deeper into today,
work harder on the miracle of life
that God gives to us.

Let us complain less, trust and hope more
as change starts with each one of us.
