Tomorrow… is a better day, a poem

FontCandy (5)

 

Toil on, until the sun sets upon your window

and know that despite your weary soul,

the calloused feet and hands,

you shall reap what you sow

as it is with all of man.

When the harvest moon

is full and bright

you shall tarry no more,

fruitless

but soon, you shall be shown

promises laid before your feet

shimmering, golden waves

of futures laid with your own hands.

For now, be careful

where you choose to tread

and be prepared for discontent

and perhaps, a bit of sorrow

but know this . . .

nothing’s more beautiful

than when wrongs are deposed

and truths untold, now speak

they have been fashioned

firm into roots

and they reach deep

they cling to the stolen promise

of another day

where the sun rises

beyond the peaks

and fills the valleys with hope,

but fear the tainted seed –

perhaps easy to grasp,

but barren still.

    Ultimately, truth comes to light & we arrive at our destiny ~ despite sometimes being wronged and/or misled. From this point forward, we strive to overcome fear, yet, tread with caution on our journey. And sometimes, in weariness, we are vulnerable to the quick fix promised in the illusion of a still barren seed. Perhaps we must maintain hope with proper measures of patience & reason to bare fruit. Your words are well-founded and very much in tune with life. Excellent write, Sumy ♥
