Tomorrow Will Be Kinder

Tomorrow Will Be Kinder

A Poem by Farhan Shaikh

Your struggles are
your reminder,
tomorrow will
be kinder.
in your darkest times,
you'll shine brighter.
you are your fate's designer,
your obstacles are like
a glider,
tomorrow will be
kinder.
you are the lonely
fighter,
no matter if you feel extinguished,
one day you'll be
shiner,
tomorrow will be
kinder.

From a writer who struggles with mental illness, depression, anxiety, etc, this poem was the most powerful to read! My dad always tells me to take life "one day at a time," and reading this piece really related to that, I feel. I admire how empowering this simple message is, yet if one reads it everyday or at least keeps it in mind, it can speak volumes. This certainly brought a powerful smile to my face, thank you so much!

Hopefulness and confidence about the future or the success in a better life is a wonderfully fulfilling subject matter. Your beautifully poetic piece nicely frames this thought exquisitely . :-)

I've read several of your poems and you write about subjects that people can relate to. Your thoughts and feelings come across well. I was wondering if English is your first language? It is complicated for native speakers. I would find it hell to learn as a second language. Some of the rhymes feel a bit forced. As in "one day you'll be shiner. Grammatically correct would be , "one day you will shine". I don't know if you wrote it the way you did, because it rhymes with kinder. Remember, words don't have to rhyme to be a poem. I hope you continue to write , as I think you have much to say that will enlighten and comfort people.

You are welcome.
Great work on this one! Very motivational with great imagery. The only flaw is that "one day you'll be shiner" is an unnecessary repetition of "you'll shine brighter" (earlier in the poem), and furthermore, "shiner" aint the same as "shinier" (the latter being what you want). If you take that line out, it wouldn't hurt the poem any: "no matter if you feel extinguished/Tomorrow will be kinder". Simple as that. No need to repeat lines that need no repetition, for the most important repetition of this poem is "tomorrow will be kinder" and that repetition is superbly done! And what's more, you don't mar the musicality. Nice!

It's beautiful. The feeling of hope you are trying to express could be felt in the entire poem. And the metaphors or similes really packed a punch
