The Promised Day

I was told to hold back all my tears,
I was told to forget those hidden fears,
I was told to smile and mutely pray -
I was told to wait just one more day.

I was told I would hear the peaceful sea,
I was told I would feel the endless glee,
I was told I would see the golden ray -
I was told to wait just one more day.

I was told I’ll get a second chance,
I was told I’ll be free of this trance,
I was told I’ll finally get my say -
I was told to wait just one more day.

I was told to firmly hold the rope –
I was told to fill myself with hope.
I was told I’ll soon find my way -
I was told to wait just one more day.

That one more day never came...
I still look forward all the same...
I wait for life to fold in pain -
I wait to be told again.

  6. Hey! Don't insult your own poetry... it may not be to your liking, but others will enjoy it! That's what poetry is about... the poet hates it, but the readers love it.
