Tomorrow

“Tomorrow,” I said,
“surely tomorrow.”

When the murder was perpetrated,
I decided to look into it tomorrow.
“Tomorrow,” I said,
“surely tomorrow.”
I went to sleep
and tomorrow never came.

When the evidence was released,
I decided to advocate tomorrow.
“Tomorrow,” I said,
“surely tomorrow.”
I went to sleep
and tomorrow never came.

When the protests occurred,
I decided to participate tomorrow.
“Tomorrow,” I said,
“surely tomorrow.”
I went to sleep
and tomorrow never came.

When the next atrocity was committed,
I decided to do something tomorrow.
“Tomorrow,” I said,
“surely tomorrow.”
I went to sleep
and tomorrow another atrocity was committed
and again the next day
and again the next day
and that’s when I took a stand.

Tomorrow, there will be more heartbreak,
more outrage,
more violence,
more love,
and more hope.
Today, there will be more action.
For tomorrow can surely wait,
but I cannot.

    1. Thank you! I definitely accept. I’ve received a few Sunshine Blogger Awards recently, so I’ll throw yours into that post. And then I’ll do a separate one for the Wanna Know You Better one.

  1. I see, in this case, procrastination is only an ignore red flag when our genuine nature faces the arbitrary society. Things happen and we are who we are. What I agree on this is to act or not, but the moment is to spend. Beautiful and thoughtful words and I liked the refrain. 🌹
