Its true matters that pertain

To the future are uncertain

The goals we dream to attain

Before death closes the curtain

The knowledge we obtain

The notions we entertain

The fears we can’t contain

The wrongs we can’t abstain

The hardships that detain

The strength we must retain

The hopes we fight to maintain

It all makes one thing certain

The present is the ship to captain

For it shapes a future we can ascertain

What we do now is what gets to sustain

A bright future that bears no stain
