Poem – Today is the Day You Have Been Waiting For

Today

Today is the day you have been waiting for
when you would finally begin to live
when you would at last open the door.

This is the what, the circumstance, the more
you have been withholding, saving to give.
Today is the day you have been waiting for

when you could sit down to your desk for
hours, take pride, time, find out what work is,
when you would at last open the door

to your own self-development, what god has for
you. Today is the day you come out of prison, live.
Today is the day you’ve been waiting for

the tomorrow you pined away yesterday for.
I think love rhymes in a way with give.
You at last open the door

to the possibility of now, the core
of life is the moment, now, how you live.
Today is the day I have been waiting for
when you would at last open the door.

A poem by Sapphire from BLACK WINGS AND BLIND ANGELS
