Tomorrow Finally Came

I used to write poetry quite often but not so much these days. Here is one from a long time back I found, so just thought I would share it! Hope you enjoy...

I always thought no matter what bad came

I could always hang on until tomorrow

I saw the good and ignored the bad

It would all be better tomorrow

Holding on to I don't know what

Afraid of what I'd be like on my own

I had to hang on until tomorrow

Don't feel today

Don't see what on it's way

Just hang on until tomorrow

Enjoying the moment and clinging tightly to that joy

Afraid if I closed my eyes it would be gone

Living inside of the dream

Afraid to wake when it would be...tomorrow

Tomorrow finally came...

Hopefully all your tomorrows will be as creative as the day you wrote this poem!

You compose well. You reminded me of what we used to sing when we were in school. http://www.oremus.org/hymnal/l/l264.html

It is hard to hang on and hope for tomorrow sometimes, your poem speaks of hope and strength.

That was nice but somehow sad.

surely we all hope for tomorrow while forgetting to live today
and so when tomorrow finally comes
it will still meet us waiting for its brother
lol

This made me want to start singing...

"Tomorrow! Tomorrow! I love you, Tomorrow! You're only a day away!" emoticon :winking:
