Tears of the Past vs Treasures of Tomorrow

By Adeleke Adeite







Do not let any mortal ink WRITE off your future:
Everyone in life has a HISTORY of past failure.

Do not let critique crush your crude creativity,
Keep dancing to the drumbeat of dare-dexterity.

The seeds that gave birth to big trees were small;
So keep watering and weeding till you stand tall.

A man whose heart is full of the pains of the past
Will have a future framed with pictures of his past.

The good old days are radiant rays to remember,
But better days await those who do not slack or slumber.

Learn from the past and leave its pitiable pains;
Live in the present and lend from its golden grains.

Long for tomorrow, looking out for hope and help;
Do not let your yesterday make you yell or yelp.

Worry does not sack rainfall from the swollen skies;
It only brings more dust and cloud to soil the eyes.

The fear of the unknown cannot scare away shadows;
It tames today and taints the treasure of tomorrow.

Regrets over the past cannot bring a clear conscience;
It puts the man on reverse gear and stark silence.

Disappointments and denial can only knock down;
Discouragement and depression make him drown.

Everyone has a past, present and future…to fly or frown;
Only the courageous and consistent take the crown.

You cannot walk backwards and arrive at the future.
Do not chain your future, change past pictures.

    The tresure of tomorrow will surly come 2 past when u dont give up. Because some people, dury the time of pain kill their selves all because of money, wealth and so on. But i want you to remember that the PACIENT DOG EAT THE FATEST BONE.

  2. Tears of the Past vs Treasures of Tomorrow Was a well put together inspirational masterpiece and I look forward to reading more of your work Mr. Adeleke. This prose left me speechless, no matter what mistakes one has made in their past and we all have made them as you stated in your magnificent piece of art, we must leave them in yesterday as we press towards tomorrow. Thumbs up my young brother!!!!
