    Tomorrow is not promised
    It is not granted
    It's not a privilege I have
    For I don't have the advantage
    My future lies with Fate
    And an allmighty higher power
    I look to God and my Destiny
    And the blessing He will hopefully shower
    For ever pain we all feel
    Tomorrow is a new day
    Spirits will soar once again
    Hearts will come out to pay
    A hurt word or a crossing glance
    Isn't with you as you lay down your head
    At night we all sleep and dream
    About the Tomorrow thats ahead
    Life is soo deep
    And yet..it's so simple
    Our lives are days ,weeks , and years
    Centuries are Earths dimples
    we look over the night skies
    The life we think we have planned
    Life is what you make it
    Yet, what I'm sayin..understand
    You can plan everything out
    from your birth to your death
    But tomorrow is a new day..
    Hell..Tommorrow you could take your last breath
    Live each day like it's your last
    For the sun sets and rises
    Our Yesterdays,Todays, and Tomorrows...
    Higher powers Only can provide it


    Think about it...

    Hi SwtT,

    Beautifully expressed! I agree, we must hold onto until tomorrow because we never know what it may bring. And we must live our lives in the moment because we never know when it all will end. Wonderful poem! I am glad you posted this one!

    Bye,

    ~Sierra~ :)

    Sometimes, I look at the mirror and realize that I may be young, but with all the drama going on around me...im the center of it so wohs to say that i have all the time in the world left?
