One day? Make it today!

make today count;
do something for another living soul.
do something small,
something meaningful -
you could make their day
(and yours too!)
smile at a passerby,
buy a stranger a coffee,
give someone a posy of flowers.
you never know what sort of day someone might be having -
reach out to them and one day someone might do the same for you too.














"one day"

sometimes I lay
under the moon
and thank God I'm breathing
then I pray
don't take me soon
cause I am here for a reason
sometimes in my tears I drown
but I never let it get me down
so when negativity surrounds
I know some day it'll all turn around
because
all my life I've been waiting for
I've been praying for
for the people to say
that we don't wanna fight no more
there'll be no more wars
and our children will play
one day
it's not about
win or lose cause
we all lose
when they feed on the souls of the innocent
blood drenched pavement
keep on moving though the waters stay raging
in this maze you can lose your way (your way)
it might drive you crazy but don't let it faze you no way (no way)
sometimes in my tears I drown
but I never let it get me down
so when negativity surrounds
I know some day it'll all turn around
because
all my life I've been waiting for
I've been praying for
for the people to say
that we don't wanna fight no more
there'll be no more wars
and our children will play
one day
one day this all will change
treat people the same
stop with the violence
down with the hate
one day we'll all be free
and proud to be
under the same sun
singing songs of freedom like
one day
all my life I've been waiting for
I've been praying for
for the people to say
that we don't wanna fight no more
there'll be no more wars
and our children will play
one day

Aw, that's lovely. I wrote about paying it forward yesterday and the first part really reminded me of that. It's such a lovely way to live. Thanks for sharing.

(Ps - this has taken me ages to post because of the letter verification thing. Sorry.)
