"It's Up To You"
Have you made someone happy or made someone sad?
What have you done with the day that you had?
God gave it to you to do just as you would.
Did you do what was wicked or do what was good?
Did you lift someone up or put someone down?
Did you hand out a smile or give them a frown?
Did you lighten some load or some progress impede?
Did you look for a rose or just gather a weed?
What did you do with your beautiful day?
God gave it to you. Did you throw it away?
I need to start asking myself this everyday, I want to live everyday with purpose and not regret. I never want to say "what if" or "I should have done that". I believe things happen for a reason and for some reason I saw this poem and for some reason it just struck me. Would I have a positive answer for each question asked, no. Can I work on some things, yes.
