Grin now or Smile later

Do you fall victim to the temporaries?
Can’t wait, need it now, or on the contrary,
Do you choose a later time to shine?
Burning your fire so yo light will blind
Not just twinkle and settle for a blink,
But inable others to see, while trying to think,
How did you do it, and are you blessed?
Choices and sacrifices are on the test?
Don’t wear white to life dressed as a waiter,
Because we can grin now or we can smile later…
