THE LAST STRAW

Thinking of yesterday, maybe last year
Wishing I had or hadn't done that
Promising never again will it happen
Knowing it might, but hoping it won't.


Looking back doesn't help
The past can't be changed
So why visit at all?
To learn, to improve, to be better.


Today is what matters 
Right now most of all
This moment won't come back
So live IN it with everything you are.


When anger attacks
No need to fight back
Give it over to God
Live in peace.


When it all falls on you
When no one can help
When there isn't enough time
Take one bite, do one thing.


When the LAST STRAW is drawn
Is yours big or is it small?
When the last breath is taken,
It won't matter at all.


Jo
