Tomorrow Postponed

Gallant ship at risk

Battered by stormy seas

Crew now in peril

Bringing all to their knees


Wayward direction

No other help about

Lost in dark tempest

Navigating with doubt


Evil’s doom waiting

Chaos stirring despair

Waves follow waves

Growling like hungry bears


Hope draining away

Gloomy clouds hiding day

Erratic compass

Searching for tranquil bay


Turmoil faced alone

Unwelcome darkness roams

Light ahead invites

Sailing toward safety’s home


Beacon now fading

Promise dwindles away

Tomorrow postponed

Surrendering its way

  1. Another masterful poem, Richard. You made every word count! / You’ve got me thinking: Fight as we might, the day will come when we can no longer forestall death. What then? “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! According to his great mercy, he has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead” (1 Peter 1:3). Hallelujah!
