Definition of “tomorrow”-
A mystical land where 99% of all human productivity, motivation and achievement is stored.
I told myself as I went to bed
I have tasks from today lined up in a row
I will complete them tomorrow instead..
Whispered my inner voice, ever polite
Do you know tomorrow is a place mythical?
As you go near, it goes out of sight
I heard the taunt in this voice cynical.
The future is an illusion, a concept abstract
Until it morphs into today
Then it becomes real, an immutable fact
So why save your life for future, say?
We humans who tend to get overwhelmed
Shift our burden to a future time slot
“Tomorrow” is seductive, and we can pretend
That is the day we’ll accomplish a lot
Today I am exhausted and demoralized
Tomorrow I shall into a new leaf turn
In a fever of activity I’ll be galvanized
Brimming with energy I shall return..
Now I am living the “tomorrow” of the day gone
Today is again dreary and bleak
Again things are leaning towards going wrong
Again the blessings of tomorrow I seek..
All of us try to procrastinate
‘Tis easy to blame what has not been seen
Tomorrow I’ll be productive, today I can waste
Tomorrow carries promises unseen..
Promises that will never, ever see
The light of tomorrow, or any other day
The lazy grasshopper will not be a bee
Tomorrow he will still continue to play.
Live for tomorrow, live in a dream
So I realized from my voice inner
Working today, it actually does seem
Distinguishes from the crowd a winner!
