Class 12 A had its assembly on the topic NOW, to elaborate on why and how living in the moment is more important than over thinking about the past or future.
Following is a beautiful poem penned by Mahathi Vempati for her class assembly
You’re depressed about that cricket match,
Your team hates you for missing that catch.
Your parents screamed at you for being lazy,
The things they expect are driving you crazy.
You’re fretting about yesterdays horrible marks,
But remember friends, if you cry when you miss the sun,
You will also miss the stars.
You’re nervous about that solo singing on stage,
You’re scared that you don’t have any courage.
You’re worried about yet another test,
And all you do the whole day is pray,
But remember friends, worrying about tomorrow,
Isn’t at all the job of today.
You see all those people succeed, and you’re wondering how?
Well, they just use their every second’s now.
You want to implement your ideas, and want to know how,
Stop thinking and start doing now.
You want to get something done, but don’t know how?
GET UP AND GET GOING NOW!
