A Toast to Proverbs 27:1

 

Most of what we want to do

Most of what we want to say

Most of who we want to become

 

It lies in boasts of tomorrow

It lies in the time we’ve borrowed

From a future 

That does not

and never will

belong to us

 

so dear Tomorrow,

Won’t you give us back

what you’ve held hostage

Give us back our bragging rights

because you never return

what we’re convinced you promised 

 

and hello Today,

Won’t you stay a while?

 

I’ve come to tell you

that you won’t be wished away. 

 

 

 

Do not boast about tomorrow,
For you do not know what a day may bring forth.

Proverbs 27:1
