Today……by Beah Richards
Today is ours, let’s live it
And love is strong, let’s give it
A song can help, let’s sing it
And peace is dear, let’s bring it
The past is gone, don’t rue it
Our work is here, let’s do it
Our world is wrong, let’s right it
The battle hard, let’s fight it
The road is rough, let’s clear it
The future vast, don’t fear it
Is faith asleep? Let’s wake it
Today is ours, let’s take it
Was watching some of the shows accumulated on my DVR.
Heard this poem recited by mega-actor Lynn Whitfield at the end of her interview on one of my favorite shows on OWN called “Oprah’s Master Class”.
