Today Poem by Vincent Kuo

Yesterday is history
Tomorrow is a mystery
But this moment I pray
For the gift of today

Today is a gift, a present
It is the now, the present
Where your choices are made
Where your decisions are weighed

Today shall soon fall prey
To be devoured by yesterday
Lingering secrets of the ensuing next
We soon shall no more be perplexed

Let us treasure this moment in time
However ridiculous, however sublime
For when the morrow knocks on the door
Any redemption of today is no more

Today is the day that our will is done
When we're still blind to tomorrow's sun
Embrace today and captain your fate
For tomorrow may just be too late
