Eager to know what tomorrow holds,
With much hope for tomorrow,
Much of happiness to behold,
Behind I lay my sorrow.

Live for today,
Learning to rise above the fears,
With the promise of life,
Now I have no more tears.

Live for today,
Letting no words be unspoken,
Live it to the fullest,
With no one being broken.



So give it all it takes,
And be glad you did,
So much might be at stake,
Be sure you have taken care of your needs.
