Carpe Diem
An hour may only seem that much
But lose it and you lose it forever
Time is precious like that
So strike while the iron’s hot
Doors will open and roads will clear
Make hay while the sun shines when they do
Never put off tomorrow what you can do today
Because opportunities only comes knocking once
Give all that you can today
As time and tide waits for no man
Gather ye rosebuds while ye may
For tomorrow brings no guarantee
There is no time like the present
So live life to the fullest
But most importantly, hope for the best
And expect the worst.

I composed this little poem to combine seven proverbs which are complements of each other. All seven may vary a little but they all mean similar, which is to SEIZE THE DAY and DON’T PROCRASTINATE.

Hence CARPE DIEM!
Go DO YOUR BEST IN ALL THAT YOU DO
And TURN THAT DREAM INTO A REALITY (well, I hope that dream is for a good intention) 

And of course, here are the individual definitions for each proverb;
Carpe Diem
Seize the day.
Strike while the iron’s hot
Make the most of an opportunity.
Make hay while the sun shines
Take immediate advantage of an opportunity.
Never put off tomorrow what you can do today
If a job needs doing, get on and do it straight away.
Time and tide waits for no man
Don’t hesitate or delay before making a decision or an opportunity might be lost.
Gather ye rosebuds while ye may
Youth and love are beyond price, so enjoy them while you can.
There is no time like the present
Don’t put that task off, do it now.
