Tomorrow Doesn’t Stay - Poem by Mehreen Mujeeb

Don’t wait for tomorrow
For today to begin
Because tomorrow never comes
Until you live for today

Life is only temporary
And tomorrow never stays
So embrace today
To live for tomorrow
Before it decays

Oh tomorrow…
Why do you tempt mankind to waste today?
Why does mankind think that tomorrow will always stay?

When the present becomes the past
And today no longer lasts
Tomorrow is always there
As hope;
As a chance.

You will only miss tomorrow once it’s gone
And you’ll only be left with memories;
Memories just drawn
Because tomorrow never stays;
Tomorrow becomes yesterday.
