Inspiring Morning Poem !!

There are two days in every week 
about which we should not worry,
two days which should be kept free
from fear and apprehension.

One of these days is YESTERDAY 
with all its mistakes and cares,
its faults and blunders,
its aches and pains.

YESTERDAY has passed forever 
beyond our control.
All the money in the world 
cannot bring back YESTERDAY.

We cannot undo a single act we performed;
we cannot erase a single word we said.
YESTERDAY is gone forever.

The other day we should not 
worry about is TOMORROW
with all its possible adversities, burdens,
its large promise and its poor performance;
TOMORROW is also beyond our immediate control.

TOMORROW'S sun will rise, 
either in splendor or behind a mask of clouds, but it will rise.
Until it does, we have no stake in TOMORROW,
for it is yet to be born.

This leaves only one day, TODAY.
Any person can fight the battle of just one day.
It is when you and I add the burdens 
of those two awful eternities
YESTERDAY and TOMORROW that we break down.

It is not the experience of TODAY 
that drives a person mad...
It is the remorse or bitterness of something
which happened YESTERDAY and the dread of what
TOMORROW may bring.

Let us, therefore,
Live but One Day at a Time.
