Tomorrow VS Tonight

Tomorrow I will find the grace
To do what is right
To take a stand
To struggle on
Tomorrow

Tomorrow I will search for peace
To accept my lot
To be content with my dreams
To just BE
Tomorrow

Tomorrow I will find the will
To conquer and achieve
To push against odds
To believe

But tonight…

Tonight I will cry
Let my bitter tears fall
Let my lonely heart call
Let my mouth fill with gall
Let my courage stall

Tonight…

I have no will to fight
I have no will to dream
I have no will to believe

Tonight….

Tonight
I wouldn't mind
If there were no tomorrow
At all...

For me

Eileen Manassian Ghali

    Eileen, I too brought two of your poems to my poetry group...contrasting emotions--- Raging and Love. They were moved by the feelings. Thank you. Allan

    Brighter days....brighter days. They wait for a wanton, incipient discovery.

    Thanks, Drake....I have my good and bad days....unfortunately for me...the bad are REALLY bad...On the flip side, the good are out of this world...No middle grounds...hardly ever. This was one of the darkest...I'm glad I made it through....

    Oh, darling Eileen... I can definitely relate to this one. This is so honest and heart felt, I can really feel your emotions. Always a pleasure to stop by your work, many hugs!

    One of my all-time fave songs, girlfriend. I classic indeed. I love Don Maclean's version. From my lips to your ears: THIS WORLD WAS NEVER MEANT FOR ONE AS BEAUTIFUL AS YOU. Warm hugs, my friend. :)

    Here is the link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oxHnRfhDmrk I can never listen to this without shedding a tear..."You took your life as lovers often do...but I could have told you, Vincent, this world was never meant for one as beautiful as you." ......."How you struggled for your sanity, how you tried to set them free. They did not listen they did not know how....perhaps they'll listen now"...Cries for help, are OFTEN unheard, Licia. Thanks for hearing. Love ya for it. Hugs

    Girlfriend.... :) It's a new day...I'm more hopeful...You are right....Weekend is here, and there are a lot of responsibilities I have to carry out. I need to survive...for now. Honestly though, it sometimes just seems overwhelming...Listen to Starry Starry Night...it always makes me cry because...that's a description not only of Van Gogh...the troubled artist..but also me.....

    Tonight, my dear Eileen, you just another human too human! Tomorrow, the giant in you will stand up and all fears of tonight will obliterate. To morrow you will be YOU AGAIN , fighting and conquering! God bless your tonight's tears!

    Hi Eileen, I sure hope this is fictional! You do have such a wonderful and unique voice in your poetry. You can even make Harry Karry sound soothing. How do you do that? hugs, Catie :)

    It wasn't sweetie...I go through these bouts now and then...I had a good cry. Night time is difficult for me...Also, 18 year traveled again. Had to resume her studies...She is my only child, and I'm very attached. My husband traveled with her and will be gone for some time, so that didn't help. I had other inner struggles I was dealing with that complicated matters. I'm better now. Thank you for the love and for the sweet sweet post! Hugs!
