Carpe Diem

Carpe Diem! Seize the day! Don't hold back And don't delay! Reach out. Reach in. Be a force for good. Don't just act because You think you should. Don't let a day pass Without showing you care. Never fail To be there. Positive things Will happen for you If you Carpe Diem Your whole life through. Work for dreams. Walk the path ahead. Don't lose heart. Gain yourself instead. When you're where You want to be. You'll explain Quite happily That things went well For you this way Because you chose to Seize the day! Written 5th January 2022 For the Latin Lessons contest Sponsor : Margarita Lillico

Aw thanks Caren. It's sometimes good to think about our personal interpretation of what these phrases mean. With phrases like this, there's no wrong way of applying it. :-D

Aw thanks Ron. I'm afraid I stole the phrase from Dead Poets Society (movie) absolutely loved the way it was put across. It's inspirational and can be applied from so many angles. :-D
