If you wait…

If you wait until tomorrow
and always hesitate
Then when tomorrow comes
around you are just a little late!

If you wait until tomorrow
thinking there will be a way
Then you do not know the
opportunities will not always stay!

If you wait until tomorrow
and if tomorrow never comes
Then it become useless to blame
the fate and in vain it goes!

The one who says I can’t today can never pay the bill
But fame and fortune wait for the one who says I will!

  1. Mmm. Yes, indeed, take action today, or donโ€™t, yet be clear about your intention, and stay off the fence, which is where suffering lives. Love this poem, dearest Preeths. Beautiful, and empowering. Have a blissful Sunday. โค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธ

  3. Your poem reminded me of a very famous “doha” (a form of hindi poetry) by the Indian mystic poet, Kabir “เค•เคพเคฒ เค•เคฐเฅ‡ เคธเฅ‹ เค†เคœ เค•เคฐ, เค†เคœ เค•เคฐเฅ‡ เคธเฅ‹ เค…เคฌ เฅค เคชเคฒ เคฎเฅ‡เค‚ เคชเฅเคฐเคฒเคฏ เคนเฅ‹เคเค—เฅ€, เคฌเคนเฅเคฐเคฟ เค•เคฐเฅ‡เค—เคพ เค•เคฌ เฅฅ” which roughly translates to “Tomorrows work do today, today’s work now If the moment is lost, the work be done how”. The last line of this doha is about what’d happen if all is doomed in the next moment.. so we must do our work now! Very much like your poem. I was amazed and so I thought I should share it with you guys :))
