A New Day

This is the beginning of a new day.

I have been given this day to use as I will.

I can waste it or use it for good,

But what I do today is important,

Because I am exchanging a day of my life for it.

When tomorrow comes, this day will be gone forever,

Leaving in its place something I have traded for it.

I want it to be gain and not loss,

Good and not evil; success and not failure,

In order that I shall not regret the price

I have paid for it.
