I'Ve Been In The Tomorrow And Came Back - Poem by lulamile kedamile

It was an awesome experience no one would wish to miss
A sense of belonging enveloped every fibre of my being,
At last I was able to call my soul my own.
I could make informed decision and be at peace with them
Yes I was no longer governed by my inferiority
And social background
In the tomorrow all I ever wished I became.

I started the business I so wished to run,
Completed my degree as I have always dreamt;
I thought I was dreaming when I entered my new house,
Driving myself across the country in my dream car;
It was there in the tomorrow where I wished
I could never come back.

Suddenly a tension erupted
Between today and the tomorrow,
Today demanded that I conflate
The two to give space to fate
Without which the reality of tomorrow is
but an illusion.

Tomorrow contended that I stay because
None of what it offered could be found on Today's plate and
That I should wait for fate and avoid being bamboozled
This left me ambivalent;
I dissected the two arguments and concluded that
Tomorrow's argument is rather archaic and
would result in apathy and dotage.

Whereas Today's carry the efficacy
leading to the enjoyment of Tomorrow's gaiety
I resolved to return from the Tomorrow
And started on the empirical road
Today has suggested.
