On a good day I can trust my health
I feel strong and invincible not like some of you
I think I’ll endure whatever comes
No pathogen is going to bring me down
Yet all it takes is a small bug and I’m on my knees
It dawns on me quickly just how fragile this flesh is
I cannot count on my health when death comes knocking
In a tender age I could count on my future
Sure I wasn’t born with a silver spoon like some
But I had the rest of my life to get one for my heirs
Every dream of mine was just a few years ahead
But how far could I scale before crumbling down
In the end it’s the worms that have a future with me
When death comes everything I built lies in ruins
On the ladder of a good career I can see a future
There’s hope of better days ahead craved by many
Yes there’s no guarantee but every fibre of mine is optimistic
And you know what? I’m ready to do whatever it takes
No one and nothing is going to stop me from the top seat
But how many sacrifices will I make before it’s not worth it?
And if I get it what legacy do I leave that time won’t steal away?
But if I cannot count on these what I’m I left with?
I’m I to succumb to hopelessness and wherever fate leads?
Should I live the rest of my life in fear of death?
Should I lose any sense of ambition and a better future?
If I stop dreaming what I’m left with but the brutal reality of this life?
I become like a drunk drinking my sorrows away waiting for death
I refuse to be that person, I refuse to believe tomorrow won’t be mine
But perhaps today is all that matters, if I can’t defeat death I can live today
Should I follow that path? Live for today and be a man of the moment?
Sounds like something isn’t? At least I can count on the here and now
Live for the moment and enjoy it to the fullest while it lasts
Give me some music, take me away on a tour, find me a show of a lifetime
Problem is my today is not always glorious, some days I want to run away
Sometimes today is so bleak that without hope for tomorrow I’m lost
This little life of mine what will I do with you?
Where on earth can I find sure comfort and safety?
Where do I land to escape such dilemmas?
Will the good life not be mine however hard I try?
Perhaps it’s because I’ve ignored the only one who can give it
That only the giver of life can give me today and hope for tomorrow
In him the fear of death is defeated and I can live sure of tomorrow
From now on I walk like I will live forever because I know I will
I plan like a little child with an eternity ahead of me
I work hard not to secure my future but because I already have it
I live for the moment but also for the future
I give him my best now informed by my eternal future with him
And though I still fear death I’m confident it won’t be my end
This little life of mine will make a mark in honor of my Lord
