Forgetting What is Behind….

“With every rising of the sun

Think of your life as just begun.

~

The past has shriveled and buried deep,

All yesterdays. There let them sleep.

~

Nor seek to summon back one ghost

Of that innumerable host.

~

Concern yourself with but to-day,

Woo it, and teach it to obey

~

Your will and wish. Since time began

To-day has been the friend of man;

~

But in his blindness and his sorrow

He looks to yesterday and to-morrow.”

Have a wonderful today!
