Tomorrow

Tomorrow

Prompt: “If tomorrow the sky is no longer blue..” by Noor Unnahar

If tomorrow the sky is no longer blue,
And the rains stop sounding the same,
Would I remember what I have today?
Or would I too move along?

If tomorrow the wolves stop howling at the moon,
And the night slips away,
Would I remember the agony that holds today?
Or would I too move along?

If tomorrow the Sun forgets to knock at our doors,
And the day sleeps into the sky,
Would I hold back for one more today?
Or would I too move along?

If tomorrow the winds stop running,
And the oceans lose their hue,
Would I still want to have this today?
Or would I too move along?

If tomorrow the mountains no longer echo,
And the sound of my voice fades away,
Would I fight for what I have today?
Or would I too move along?

If tomorrow the spring shows up as a stranger,
And the soil refuses to shelter her flowers,
Would I sing my fears to have back today?
Or would I too move along?

If tomorrow the stars all lose their lustre,
And there remain no constellations to be gazed,
Would I learn to appreciate what I have today?
Or would I too move along?

If tomorrow my words don’t taste the same,
And the world relinquishes it’s yesterday,
Would I be willing to let go of today?
Would I ever move along?

  1. Every time I come here, I appreciate my today for being fortunate enough to read this, and I will move along always, if I will be able to come here again and again!
    Keep writing☺

  2. Such a beautiful way to appreciate “Today”..
    Carpe diem!!!

    Not everyone can observe and applaud to these small but important aspects of “Today”!

    Keep it up!!!

  3. Amazing! Your poem makes me revisit my today and for a moment stop thinking about tomorrow. Much impacting! Too good!

  4. I try to unveil your thought process and sometimes, I think I almost can but then you pull stuff like this out of absolutely no where and I feel like I’m back to square one. Dude you fascinate me so so much. I’m always left in awe. You make me think. Look at things from a different perspective. Appreciate life as it is and as it could be. And I’m so thankful to know you. You have no idea.
