"The clock is running. Make the most of today. Time waits for no man. Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. Today is a gift. That's why it is called the present."


The line between
good and bad
is thin
microscopic
too slight for any human to distinguish
where it begins
and ends

We cannot blame ourselves though
for good and evil
mirror each other
much like a lake
in the midst of a cloudy day
in some darkness
and in some light

The only thing
separating
good and bad
is purpose
intention

The only difference
between
hate and love
sin and good deeds
lies and honesty
is the way in which
they were meant to be interpreted

It does not matter
how much you succeed
in life
if you live virtuously
and your intent
is good

Then the line
between good and bad
will seem wider
than the Milky Way

And the only line
that will be thin to you
is that between sanity
and madness
