When tomorrow knocks,
I'll welcome it with a smile
And walk a mile

When tomorrow comes,
I'll bid today farewell
And a story to tell

If tomorrow comes ,
I'll glow like a child
By her father's side

If tomorrow is now,
I'll take it as it comes
Each day, taking turns!



Rummaging mindless thoughts
In endless abyss I sink...
Too scared to blink
Perplexed, thinking a re - think

Of what I once thought was
On me dawned is not
My eyes fade like a blade
Inflicted by venomous pain

Each day's accompanied shades
Put me on shades of wondering lanes
Pondering how and when started
Will it ever end....?

Weak but holding on...
And yes! In patient wait
Longing for when I could live again
Way beyond bills
Of stakes and shaky hills
Not killing unceasing infliction of pain.....


Helen Gyigya, Makurdi, Nigeria
