Are We Afraid of Tomorrow? #Poetry

AFRAID OF TOMORROW

I am afraid of tomorrow, of what it might bring

Of a hunger for things unseen, yet unknown

A feeling that something interferes with your thoughts, your plans

That something watches, waiting for you to mess up

Take the wrong road.

Spend too much time on things that go nowhere.

There are days when the world around you

Feels as though it is made of treacle

Each step you take, your feet gather more of the sticky stuff

Until you feel as if you are wearing lead boots.

Tomorrow comes; the sun shines through your window

Birdsong filters through your sleeping mind.

Today you believe in angels

You put the lead boots in the cupboard

Open the window and let the new day in

Let the soft summer breeze carry yesterday’s dark thoughts away…

Victor

Megha's World

“Fire tests gold, suffering tests brave men.”
― Seneca

audi-nissen-114639The darker the clouds get
The stronger the resolve becomes
The faster the breath gets
The stronger the heart pounds
The teary the eyes get
The wider the smile is
The badly you miss someone
The fonder the love gets
The harder it rains
The more beautiful is the rainbow
Pain is not the effect but the essence of victory
Deeper is the wound stronger is the lesson
The harder you fight the bigger Victor you become.

MONEY OVER HAPPINESS

***

Gotta make money

Why aren’t we living better?

Lost time, lost money

***

NOTE: Too many of us choose to monetize our time, which means that we are prioritizing money over happiness. Driving an Uber will make us money, but staying at home may make us happy. Unfortunately, too many of us are forced to monetize what ought to be our spare time.

Bullets

Sarah Doughty

“Now that you’re gone, it’s as if
everything is darker without you here.”

We shot through the night like bullets, jumping from one destination to the next. It felt freeing, out there with you, under the watchful eye of the moon. I miss those nights now that you’re gone. It’s as if everything is darker without you here.

Reflection

pouringtruth

There’s a ghost in the mirror,
She sings songs with my face,
I have seen her before,
But we went separate ways.
The blues of her eyes
Still swallow me whole,
She’s dynamite explosion,
Too scared to let it show.
I want to be something
I’m afraid I’m not,
I’m too pretty to cry,
But too shy to be her.
