Today, I couldn’t reach my destination,
I had wandered away from the path;
I had been led astray by the glittering non-essentials,
And now I’m stuck and clueless, in the gathering night.
But tomorrow, with its promise of sunlight,
Holds an assurance of a journey completed.
Today, I failed to shine,
And lighten the world –
Giving the next man the inspiration to brighten his
Today, I neglected the one thing that was essential – love.
As I look back with dismay,
I realize with a heart full of gratitude:
I have one more gift –
Tomorrow – to make things right.
Today, I failed; tomorrow I’ll succeed,
Today is marred by my actions,
Tomorrow is a fresh lump to be molded into greatness;
Today, I wished I had not been born,
Tomorrow I’ll be immortalized.
Tomorrow, a day of hope and better things awaits,
I’ll rise and meet it with gladness;
For tomorrow I’ll shine.
