Today is already tomorrow
Somewhere in the world.
Today someone is wishing
For their anger to unfurl.

Tomorrow someone will ask
For another day to come.
Today someone will die
Waiting for help to come.

Yesterday a mind said,
"I can't wait for tomorrow."
Today that mind answered,
"Waiting won't stop the sorrow."

Today someone will say,
"Joy you can never borrow."
Today someone will die
Waiting for tomorrow.

"Today someone will die/Waiting for tomorrow." <- That's very powerful. Wow. This is very cool. You've compacted many different thoughts into a short piece that connects with others. This is very impressive. I also love how you used dialogue in your poetry, I love it when people do that.
