Goodbye Tomorrow - Poem by john chizoba vincent

Goodbye tomorrow for I may not
Love to see you glow and smile,
Today had had much of my sorrow.
Tell mother of my sweet bitterness,
The cruel kindness of disease I harbour.
Though the future holds more joy
But my legacy must reamain to inherite
And testify of my deeds on earth.

Goodbye mother earth,
In joy I come, in pains I go.
It is not in pleasure that I leave but
Let me go to the phase where I am celebrated
Not here where I am only been tolerated.
Today has seen enough of my travail,
Posternity will forget not my name.

Goodbye father wind,
Many seek to have you more than I do.
I am no longer comfortable with you,
I shall return to the dust where I was
Made because the earth detest me much
more than the dungeon of faeces.

Goodbye tomorrow,
See you the next time I return.
My eyes are weak and tired behind the desert of pile and cancer.
My life suffers in glittered ailment which torment me.
I may not secure you, my tomorrow but my children
And my legacy await you at the door post.

Tell brother of my travail,
Like a pregnant woman I have
Been through a fatal labour.
I have seen ghosts bark at my feet
Nothing worth a gold to me any more.
Tell the world to have peace and wait patiently
Until the messiah who will redeem her comes.
But now let me go to the other phase
Where life worth more than the earth.
