Not Yet


I know it is going to happen
I know it has to happen
But Please ‘Not Yet’-

Each day of ‘Not yet’
Will prove that ‘Not Yet’ can always be put off
For another day-
It’s ‘Not Yet’ today and it will be ‘Not Yet’ tomorrow

I know one day however
In the middle of some ‘Not yet day or night’
It will stop being ‘Not yet’-

I know it
But somehow I don’t really believe it-

I know day by day I will put it off forever
‘Not yet’ will be eternal
And I will go on writing lines
Forever.
