Today

Today will be different
Everything changes
right here
and now

Today is the day

I'm going to put
plans into action
take names
kick tail

Today is the day

My 'T's will be
powerfully crossed
my 'I's will be
dotted with a smile

Today
my microwave popcorn
won't have un-popped kernels 
at the bottom of the bag

Hesitation will be
tossed aside
replaced with a sense 
of urgency

Contemplation will 
step aside
for the arrival
of methodical execution

Today
I will re-invent myself
recycle the
biodegradable mold

Today
long term sustainability
will be realized
on a universal scale

Today
I will be first to act
watch your back
be ready for a counterattack

There will be no need
to retract
stretch the facts
kneel to prevent a sack

Today
will be different
today
things are gonna change

Listening will be
active
words will be
well thought

Intentions will be
clear
methods will be
proven

Faith will be
constant
then questioned
tested, lost, then regained
again
stronger than before

Fear will be
respected
but will not under any circumstances
get in the way of expressing
love, compassion, truth

Feelings will be
considered
others will be
recognized

Glory will be
shared
blame will be
kept selfishly
Selflessness will be
rampant
egos will go
dormant

Learning will become
paramount
teaching will remain
heroic

Eye contact will be
encouraged
accepted
returned

Handshakes
hugs
high-fives
will become
commonplace

Touching some one's heart will be
allowed
Opening your own will be
mandatory

Leaders will
follow
students will
step up to the plate

Today is the day
Yesterday is gone
tomorrow never comes

It doesn't matter if you
feel ready
or not
it's here

Today we
fight back
Today we will
come face to face
with our destiny

Today
