Self-help From Have You Earned Your Tomorrow

Is anybody happier because you passed his way?

     Does anyone remember that you spoke to him today?
This day is almost over, and its toiling time is through;
     Is there anyone to utter now a kindly word of you?
Did you give a cheerful greeting to the friend who came along?
Or a churlish sort of \”Howdy\” and then vanish in the throng?
Were you selfish pure and simple as you rushed along the way,
Or is someone mighty grateful for a deed you did today?
Can you say tonight, in parting with the day that\’s slipping fast,
     That you helped a single brother of the many that you passed?
Is a single heart rejoicing over what you did or said;
     Does a man whose hopes were fading now with courage look ahead?
Did you waste the day, or lose it, was it well or sorely spent?
     Did you leave a trail of kindness or a scar of discontent?
As you close your eyes in slumber do you think that God would say,
     You have earned one more tomorrow by the work you did today.

 To stop by and make a soul feel better is the best way to make our today and earn a better tomorrow. Your good wish,  a small act of kindness, or a simple smile has the power to give strength to someone who needs it for the day and these little things have the mighty power to heal a soul and also help it to replenish hope that has all the miracle of happiness within it. Life as a whole is a manifestation of goodness that we shower on ourselves and others who share the planet with us. If my post for today brought a smile on all those who are reading this I would be happy that I earned a tomorrow by the good work I did today. #ThankyouBloggerWrites

  1. I agree, if we can bring smile on atlas one person throughout our day then we should be proud of it. Nothing is more satisfactory than to know that someone is counting on you and looking unto you. If we can become the reason to smile for someone then how beautiful is that.


  2. You know today's fast paced life everyone is busy in their own lives. your post is a beautiful reminder to think again and do even a little act of kindness for others. indeed it is best way to add a worth to our otherwise busy lives.


  3. A good wish, a small act of kindness, or a simple smile, this is all that we need to make someone feel better…… this difficult?…….no its not but still people have forgotten and thanks dear for this reminder.


  4. Well said Siva I too believe and feel nothing can be more delighted than being a reason for someone's smile. What a beautiful poem you have shared with us through this bloghop. Do I need to say that yes your post made my day?


  5. Very nice poem. Especially loved the last 2 lines, \”As you close your eyes in slumber do you think that God would say,You have earned one more tomorrow by the work you did today.\” It is indeed our deeds that define our future.


  6. Very nice poem Siva, and the way you simplify it towards the end is always a pleasure to read. Sometimes a little act of kindness goes a long way, all we need to do is pause and spread happiness, very easy to do but don't know why people find it so hard.


  7. One of my favorite pieces. And so true. We never realize what difference a simple gesture makes in the other person's life. We are always in a rush and rarely pause to understand the value of a good deed.


  8. Sure your post make me smile today. Beautiful poem and the message behind it. To stop by and make a soul feel better is the best way to make our today and earn a better tomorrow.


  9. This really made me think of my day today. I was thinking of all the conversations I had today, did I say something that hurt someone or did I make someone's day. Your choice of poems are so real, it touches the right chord.
