Tomorrow Is Dark
Sunday, February 14, 2021
Today is sunny, the snow is white, my mind is full of questions seeking answers that I can not find. What will it bring when I awaken in the morning, will the sun still be shinning, will life be the same? Will I be faced with wonder that I cannot explain?
I look through open eyes that sometimes I wish were shut, I hear with ears that sometimes I wish were deaf. I want to envision a world of peace, but my thoughts are telling me it will be a world of defeat. A world like nothing I have ever known, a world with a life and a mind of its own.
I have faced fear and terror once in a while but having to face it now and forever is something I can’t explore. The turmoil that spins in my head as I sleep is nothing compared to what will be happening live at my feet.
It is not I that I worry about these days, it’s my loved ones around me that can’t see what’s happening right in their face. Freedom is a privilege that we should all share and enjoy but having it snatched without reason or glory is what is happing and will be the end of the story.
Should I fight for what I think is right, should I give in and face the evil in sight. Am I wrong or am I right to think the way I do, nothing could be worse than feeling the doom. It’s coming for sure, nothing can stop it now but a bullet to the head and to be buried under the ground.
I have lived a lifetime on hopes and dreams, yet TOMORROW IS DARK.

I was asked about this . I dabble in art and in poetry from time to time...this was my way of bring both of them together. It's been quite a while since I had written any poetry. I just wanted to see if I could and I wanted something that spoke to my Art Piece.
