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.
