Poet: Grant Ngobean

Live for today, hope for tomorrow
And forgot about yesterday...forgot
‘I CAN’T ‘ for those are the words of a coward
And remember ‘I WILL TRY’ for those
Are the words of a potential winner?

The only way you can regret yesterday is
When you’ve never learnt anything from it
And remember that what ever you worry about
It’s in the past, there is nothing you can change or do about it,
Just accept to choose to see
Yesterday‘s problems as an opportunity to grow.

Worry is wasting today’s time
Cluttering up tomorrow‘s opportunities
With yesterday‘s trouble.
How many times do we look back on?
An event and think, if only I had...
How many times do we do something that we wish hadn’t done?
You can’t change a past event,
Its yesterday, you can’t change what has been done.

Do you call it regret, sorrow, repentance?
Do you think about what might have been?
Do you relieve an event the way it should have been?
Forget about regret and focus on today, not on yesterday.
Focus on what you can do, not what you didn’t do.

The only thing to feel sorrow for
Is not living each day to the fullest,
The only thing to repent is to sincerely say I’m sorry!
Don’t live your life regretting yesterday...
Live your life so tomorrow you won’t regret today.
It doesn’t matter what anyone thinks or say about you,
What really matters is what you think and say about your self...
Then what you do about it.
