Today for Tomorrow

May 24, 2008
By Ashley McAlpin, Simi Valley, CA

For Tomorrow, for Tomorrow
my choices of Today will make
my Tomorrow

Don't do this! Don't do that!
START A MOVEMENT, LEAD A CLASS
MOVE! Faster & faster

Can't dance, can't sing, can't sit somewhere
calm & quiet & yours
& think

If you take that class They'll hate you
They won't want you

They are the Tomorrow
the Tomorrow I'm living for Today

I hate it. Don't make me play.
You can't quit, can't quit
Soccer is your game
It's ALL you have, THAT'S the you
WE need

the you I don't want to be

I wonder if They're bluffing
or if Their tales are true
that if I live for Today, my
Tomorrow will be through

There are moments, nightmare moments
I fear too late to see
the Life is built of the Todays lived
and not the Tomorrows never seen
