A well-lived present will make tomorrow, a better future.

A well-lived present will make tomorrow, a better future.

grieve not the loss of breasts.

grieve not the loss of an anus.

grieve not the loss of an amputated limb.

grieve not the loss of a mentally healthy child.

It is all, but, the past.

welcome a new life beating breast cancer.

welcome a stoma, a new anus.

welcome a new prosthetic limb.

welcome a mentally well-rehabilitated child.

Live the present, the best one can.

For today, the ‘present’, well-lived,

will make a tomorrow,

a better future!
