Tomorrow's Fate

Custom User Avatar
More by this author
In desperate need of repair
Rejuvenating my life into hate
Life itself is devoured by the lust
Of inhumanity's godawful fate

To read between the lines of a lie
Lays little of hidden truth
To fall within the lines of this life
Is to be fooled, guaranteed of new

Into tomorrow's future holds greater life
As to today's future may hold no strife
Than to be lost beyond yesterday's promise

Stricken down by a lifeless creation
Created nonetheless by life's force
I'll grasp no mercy in all who I am
To prove this life shows no remorse

In my own failure to compose a symbol
Of the broken to regain their form
Shattered from yesterday's battle
Carded off to the shadow's sworn

Into tomorrow's future holds greater life
As to today's future may hold no strife
Than to be lost beyond yesterday's promise

As the blackened depth of history
Is pleaded back down to hate
I'll take the pieces left of me
And regard today's fate

Fate structures a future rebuilding foundations
Destroying the broken idealizations
Tomorrow has another promise

Into tomorrow's future holds greater life
As to today's future may hold no strife
Than to be lost beyond yesterday's promise

Tomorrow's promise will prevail..
Tomorrow's fate..

Thanks again. :D Style defines a person. Keep to it. My style tends to lie between ABCB rhyming schemes and stanzas. Sometimes I mix it up, but I have to make an effort. :p

I seriously wish I could write lenghty poetry like that of yours. I just have this very distinct style of writing that lies between 8 and 14 lines. Your work is so interesting. I love it. Please keep writing!

I want to hear this made into a song, because it deserves more then written word. I loved it, you are very talented Leilani, and you do write beautifully, keep it up and don't ever stop.

It flows so nicely.
Love the word choice. It keeps the reader interested.
And as Afroman said, I enjoyed the past, present, future lines.
:]

Woah, great poem. Sounds a lot like a song. :P I like all the double meanings, and how you keep mentioning the present, past, and future all at once. Great job.
