A Shiny New Tomorrow

I'm a writer, a poet, a dreamer. Born and raised in New York City. I now live in Daytona Beach, Florida. .


In this crazy world,

I sometimes think -

that I am but a cloud,

passing by, blown by the wind.

I look at the birds,

so happy and singing,

able to fly here and there,

so carefree.

And I wonder -

Am I like them?

Can I take my troubles

and toss them aside?

Sing a merry tune

and go on my way.

Then comes a rainy day,

it fills me with sorrow,

then I remember,

there will be a better tomorrow.

So I say away with all my tears,

bring on the smiles

and the happy days.

Nothing in this life,

can be any better -

than the dreams that we dream.

Giving us hope for the future,

perhaps we’ll catch that lucky star,

shining upon us from afar.

Favorite songs bring golden memories,

while we put our sorrows behind.

Always grateful,

for the blessings -

that are bestowed upon us

and able to sail into a bright and shiny -

new tomorrow.

Thank you Shauna. Glad you enjoyed this.

Shauna L Bowling from Central Florida on March 15, 2017:

Behind every dark cloud is a shiny new tomorrow. It's all in the way you choose to see life.

Beautiful inspiration, Rasma!

That is so true FlourishAnyway. Dwelling on troubles will just continue to bring us down. Life was meant for living.

FlourishAnyway from USA on February 13, 2017:

I'm a believer in the idea that we can choose to be happy (or not). While it's difficult to take troubles and cast them aside, one doesn't have to dwell on them.

So true Chris. We cannot give up on our dreams.

Thank you Cyndi and many sweet dreams to you as well.

Thank you Kristen.

I know that song well and you're right Bill. I think the confusion is between the two popular songs Blowing in the Wind and Dust in the Wind but then dust could be blowing along with the winds as well. Sorry couldn't resist adding that.

It's our dreams that keeps us going Ruby.

So true Michael.

Thinking positively is what can get us through our days Vellur.

Beautifully expressed, I too believe that there will always be a brighter tomorrow and the dark clouds will pass because the wind will blow them away.

Living in an unending hope keeps us focused.

Ruby Jean Richert from Southern Illinois on February 10, 2017:

We all dream of a shiny new tomorrow, which you conveyed so beautifully...

Bill Holland from Olympia, WA on February 10, 2017:

Oops, make that "Dust in the Wind"....lol

Bill Holland from Olympia, WA on February 10, 2017:

The opening lines reminded me of a song by Kansas in the 70s..."Blown In the Wind".....very pretty and uplifting reflection, Rasma!

Kristen Howe from Northeast Ohio on February 10, 2017:

Beautiful poetry Rose! Nice visual with so much emotions.

Cynthia B Turner from Georgia on February 10, 2017:

Beautifully expressed. Dreams are what keep us going even through the rainy days. Lovely poem. Take care and keep dreaming.
