    The Promise

    Your not promised another breath,
    another step,
    another glance.

    Do what you can today.
    Fight for the day your living now.

    The past already happened.
    But the present is here waiting.

    Make each day pleasent.
    Live with no regrets.

    Your not promised another breath,
    another step,
    another glance.

    Act as if the past never happened,
    Act as if today was your last,
    Act with a smile and a dance,
    Act as if this was no act.
     
    If we arent promised to wake as we sleep.
    Lets make a promise now that as we wake we will
    embrace the life thats now,
    Lets promise that our lifes are worth more then gold,
    Lets promise to one another we wont break our promise.

    thank u very much for that

    Poetry is not an expression of the party line. It's that time of night, lying in bed, thinking what you really think, making the private world public, that's what the poet does.

    Allen Ginsberg (1926-1997) U.S. poet.
