Today Will Always Be Today

by | Jun 9, 2016 | Poetry | 0 comments

What is today if not a bridge for tomorrow?
They told us so to suck in all the pain
to promise a better day will come,
a better sun will shine
tomorrow which never comes—
today will always be today.

No conspiracy theory,
you are writing now your history—
no aliens, no secret bad rogues
holding up all the strings,
let me one time in this show
play my role— the one I wrote—
why are looking like that at me?
Haven’t you written any?

What are you doing here sitting
reading— indulging your big brain—
like a leaf in a hurricane,
enslaved by the yesterday
taken hostage by the tomorrow
living in a bubble like in a dream
except for this time, don’t wait to wake up,
you are already alive—
this is a real feed of your life.

Sell me one more year of yours,
a new product has just come out,
another year is sold;
the degree, the car, the household,
you’ve given away your best;
enjoy in the last days a look
in a spyglass into the glorious lost youth—
You could have changed the world
you’ve just let the world change you.
Wake up you!
spending today buying tomorrow—
today will always be today.
