Tomorrow.....Tomorrow - Poem by Valsa George

Tomorrow I shall see the birth of the awaited dawn
Though today it seems I am locked in a midnight zone
Tomorrow I will not walk into the dread of the night
But shall be led by the blazing light

Tomorrow I will carry my yoke manfully
And never recite the litany of my woes mournfully
Tomorrow I shall slow down and stop by the mountain side
And watch the silvery stream, joyfully down way glide

Tomorrow I shall seize every chance that I come my way
And never wait for them to fall on another day
Tomorrow I shall be out of my prison cell with discord round
And shall enter a palace with joys abound

Tomorrow I shall willingly partake of another’s grief
And never seek solely my own relief
Tomorrow I shall wait for the calm that follows the storm
And not grumble in haste that life is a withering dream

Tomorrow I shall look beyond the clouds of gathered gloom
And see for myself the beauty of stars that in hundreds bloom
Tomorrow amid hostilities I shall keep alive the sparks of friendship
And never mourn the absence of anyone for companionship

Now in a tone so teasing I heard someone say to my utter surprise
“Your resolutions sound so good, but what if tomorrow doesn’t arise? ”

    Do whatever that need to be done for today for tomorrow
    may not get here. If tomorrow happens to appear then try
    to spread some bounteous cheer. A very thoughtful write.

    Tomorrows would sure break its silence and gloom, cheer herself up to welcome you to those cherished lawns of desires, hopes and delights. Yesterdays, Today and Tomorrows all are from the same genre, So, not there much to be of panic yet. Desires, Resolutions and even Oaths might well be glittering well, when the garland of a new born day is blessed by the Soul's content. I whisper off the bad omen descended on your blessed verses '“Your resolutions sound so good, but what if tomorrow doesn’t arise? ” God Bless (Report) Reply

    We are bound by space, time and physical existence. So we measure it by meters and kilometers; todays and tomorrows. When are out of this shell, in eternity the last stanza question does not arise. The rhythm and sustained rhyme scheme add beauty to the philosophic poem. I love it. (Report) Reply

    Dont care for what someone says, just have faith in the grammar of our lives, the construction of ourpersonality structure might go wrong by adding this......WHAT IF....Your resolutions are gripping n strong, dont allow someone else to break this positivity.... (Report) Reply
