RISE AND SHINE
Morning can bring an empty dread
When doubt and dullness lie ahead
No worse deal does someone know
Than all dressed up, no place to go.
Absence of a future plan
Limits the venue in life of man
If not in charge, it’s easy to see
We’ve turned things over to destiny.
Good portion of faith must be infused
For what’s uncharted ends up unused,
No need to chart our eternity
Just daily causes for you and me.
Days become an unstructured route
If we let our tomorrows fizzle out
Life soon loses all its splendor
When the future we surrender.
Be not robbed of the anticipates,
The chance of arrival for what awaits;
If faith and courage are to survive,
Mankind must keep hope alive.
Motivation, be it so true,
Hinges on our looking forward to--
There’s a reason to jump out of bed
When meaningful plans lie ahead!
