Now Is The Shining Moment - Poem by Bernard F. Asuncion

Now is the shining moment,
Waste not any chances;
Time is of the essence,
Let all be in the right places.

Yesterdays won't be back again,
For they are already gone;
Finish what you have started,
And begin with another one.

Count not the passing hours,
Neither the spent strain;
Let the result speak louder
Than difficulties and pain.

After the hard heavy rain,
The sun will come shining;
When the long night is over,
It's another new day dawning.

Let not success wait for you,
Nor you bide for victory;
You must work harder today,
Till triumph is meant to be.

Do it sooner than later,
Accomplish your assignment;
For tomorrow is uncertain,
Now is the shining moment.
