The Tomorrow I Seek
What's your ideal Tomorrow like?
Me: the day I will do what I should have done ages back and what I should be doing now.
If you're like me, it means we both are on the negative end of the word TOMORROW.
Who will save me?
I've pushed my life to Tomorrow.
My today ends before it begins.
I've hyper magnified tomorrow at the expense of Today's existence.
I dream of a beautiful Tomorrow but ignore all the flowers Today brings.
What a cheat I am.
Longing for Tomorrow while pretending to be happy with Today.
Am I really ignoring my beautiful young day for the older version of her.
I promised to be faithful to my Today, but I'm already passing through her, unaware of her will and reward, lost in my chase after a Tomorrow whose beauty and fulfilment is hidden in Today.
When I finally find Tomorrow; it is no wonder the great sense of nostalgia, just another day, Nothing New, besides the wrinkles and loss of taste, will, and zeal to chase.
