What is that-
that which is tomorrow?

A hope for a new day?
Or a new day of hope?
A change in the making?
Or making new change?

That which is tomorrow-
Is it a blossoming dream?
Or a dream still a dream-
within a mind fast asleep?

Is it a life in progress?
Or a search for a life?
A beginning? An end?
Or a means to them both?

That which is tomorrow-
Is still but- tomorrow;
An uncertain truth
Or a certain untruth

A mirage, nevertheless-
A wonderful sight
It is, but not-
That which is tomorrow...

Tomorrow is nothing i think as it never comes .. as u say the uncertain truth .. so y worry of that when we have TODAY


RamMmm said...

Wishing you, your family and the cats a Happy New Year, first!

Today is tomorrow's yesterday,
And tomorrow, the day after's;
Smile at your present,
While you ponder the truth.

Have a great year ahead.

You say tomorrow is ' ascertain truth '; so be it; I read somewhere,
long ago, that you can never define 'Now ', except by saying that ' now '
is the future of the past and the past of the future; ultimately every such discussion turns out to be mere tautology; sometimes intellectually
titillating and provoking--pleasantly ? Your oxymoronic expressions
add literary value, to your write-up;; I enjoyed reading your out-poring ‘
on the first day the New Year Wishing you Good-Luck…

Tomorrow, tomorrow, I love ya tomorrow,
You’re always a day away!

Read that somewhere.
I think, tomorrow is what we make of it.
Of course there has to be some other element controlling it too, but nature gives us a fair deal, doesn't it.

Nice read,
