#PoemAlert: The Fear of Tomorrow – Chioma Irene



I usually think of tomorrow
In an unseemly way
Sometimes in fear,
I’d wish for daylight to come fast.
While in awe,
I’d wish for daylight
not to part.

This fear of tomorrow
robs me of today’s joy;
It makes me see what’s not there;
weakness, foes, anxiety, etc,
And I can’t be positive.
No, I can’t be ME!

But today, i’m going to wake up
Believing tomorrow is today.
And I don’t have to be scared,
Because each new day offers new choices;
To be a better Me than I was yesterday.

So choose today.
Make it your tomorrow.
And choose to be better than what you were yesterday.

I’m yours truly,

Chioma Irene
