I glance longingly ahead

The light piercing through my sunglasses

Everything I have worked for

All the sacrifices I have made

Culminating into a moment

That will never quite come

Until the end, as far as I’m told

There will always be a tomorrow after today

So when I need a pick me up

I cuddle with my well-worn thoughts

Thumb through the threadbare scenarios

Exist in the ethereal space out of time

In my mind

When it comes

will I know it?

Amidst the goings

and comings of life

How does one ascertain

they have arrived?

    Beautiful poem! It made me think of what I take for granted in life. I’ve always gone with the idea that life is about the searching, and if you hurry all the way to the goal the journey will be long, boring and unhappy. I live each day as though it were tomorrow, with the future in mind, but I do not hesitate to plunge into timeless questions like those your poem poses.

    Thank you for this beautiful treat!

    I felt a connection with this poem…the lines:

    “Everything I have worked for…All the sacrifices I have made…Culminating into a moment…That will never quite come”

    …reflected my own journey back at me. An excellent poem, thank you for sharing and have a Happy New Year.
