Tomorrow Never Comes

Hope hides under the bed,
a forgotten pair of shoes,
waiting for the next journey,
that never seems to come.

Low crouching, grasping reach,
searching for the prize. Brushing
off cobwebs of old memories
seeking rebirth, with no recollection
of a time that came before.

Death is a reality that cannot
be ignored. Marching along
a wooden walkway, destiny
holds out a foreboding hand.

Hours passed in darkness, traveling
over unknown landscape. I hear
but cannot see. A thin veil of faith disguising
all my sins. Tomorrow comes too quickly
when tomorrow never comes.
