The Test Of Time

By sunset,

today will not be as it was

at sunrise.

Things will have happened,

things will have changed,

life will have happened.

The Test Of Time, Benie.
Things change over time— 
a place is not what it once was,
a person is not who they once were.
No condition or situation lasts—
your good times will not,
so make the most of them;
your bad times will not,
so make the least time
and space for them
in your heart and in your mind.
The past is gone,
things changed,
and you are here now.
May you not spend sleepless nights
beating yourself up for
or brooding over
something in your past.
And may you not spend sleepless nights
worrying about tomorrow—
tomorrow will come and it will pass.
Today, live the best life you can.
By sunset,
today will not be as it was
at sunrise.
Things will have happened,
things will have changed,
life will have happened.

  1. 🙏🏻By sunset,
    today will not be as it was
    at sunrise. 🙏🏻

    Makes one flinch, the truth is so powerful
    We pray, at the call of twilight we may enjoy a fiesta of sunsets, sleep with grace and peace by our side, smiling when sunrise creeps in
