“Thinking Aloud” - to be read tomorrow


She’s looking. Looking, looking….
She thought yesterday, thinking again:
“What is there for me tomorrow –
Another somber day? More pain?”

“Tomorrow”, a mysterious matter,
Out of everyone’s reach and touch,
A rock-solid fence which crumbles
At the strike of twelve, at midnight…

She thinks beyond her pain and sorrow,
"Tomorrow, she thinks, shall be a better day,"
“Tomorrow is a Hope,
Tomorrow is always better than today…”
**********************
Tomorrow is just another day,
Yet, people shall remember to be kind…
And every evening everyone would say,
“Today I made ten people smile…”

That was a lovely poem, Natalie.

I would wish these lines:
She thinks beyond her pain and sorrow,
"Tomorrow, she thinks, shall be a better day,"

Instead had read something like:
She thinks toward her bliss and harmony,
"Tomorrow, she thinks, shall be a perfect day,"

Not criticism of the poem; just wishing to see your words smile.

The photograph is great. Where was it taken?

Criticism from you? - It is a privilege, Fram! Thank you, may I use your lines in a different poem?

The picture was taken by the same Fieldston park in Riverdale.
