Seize The Chance

Rating: 5.0

Seize the day, seize the chance
Seize the feelings in my glance
Grasp the moment, fear no longer
Waiting won't make you stronger
Chase that hope, chase this dream
No matter how hard it might seem
Time runs fast, time will never wait
So say it before it's too late
Say all you want, say all you feel
Carpe Diem, that's the only deal

Seize this chance, seize this day

Whether we habitually waste time through careless idleness or intentional procrastination, it's one of the hardest habits to break, and also one of the most destructive. What is more valuable to mere mortals, none of whom can predict the number of their days? Yes, the leanness of your assertive directives seems justifiable.

This is a Great Poem because there is a great spirit behind it. The spirit is yours and you can take pride in it, not vanity but pride. We must take what we are given and make something of it. Despair is understandable but unacceptable. This is a poem by as fighter for justice. You know you are expressing what are at best half truths, but you have faith in that measure of truth and are making a f-u-t-u-r-e from it. I hope you have a huge circle of friends who share your values. We need poems like this to raise our spirits and make our work of rescuing the world from its broken state a joyous task. I just thought id this: A poem like this one is not realistic or unrealistic; it is an ACT OF GOOD. Jesus said, Better to light one candle than curse the darkness. This poem is one of those candles! !
