Edge of Tomorrow

I stand on the edge of tomorrow

A tortuous precipice

Uncertainty howling

Fear chills the bone

Sweat breaks out from every pore

There is only one way forward

With eyes closed and arms spread

I take the plunge.

    Wow!!!! Now that’s what I call taking the bull by the horn! And you sure nail the bull right in the centre of both eyes! Though sometimes some decisions are tough to be made, we just must close our eyes and take that plunge…excellent piece and very educating…

    1. topazo says:

      Thanks Jules.
      Despite the fact that the future is shrouded in uncertainties, we must still face it head long…

      1. Adeleke Julianah says:

    Pretty’s as pretty does but beautiful on the other hand’s just plain ‘Be-U-ti-ful’! The use of imageries here, I find totally appealing, breathtaking and very hypnotic! You brought this Doc, you really did and am completely drawn to yet another of your masterpieces! So profoundly brilliant! Double thumbs up Sir! LOL

    ‘I stand at the edge of tomorrow’, with tomorrow representative of a Peak, and the Narrator….pretty terrified of great heights! He finally does muscle up just the right amount of courage, which Ambrose Redmoon defines as ‘Not the total absence of fear, but rather; the judgment that something else is more important than one’s fear’! Todd Bellemore on the other hand says ‘Courage is facing your fear, Stupidity’s fearing nothing’! LMAO!

    In all, we gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which we really stop to look fear in the face says Eleanor Roosevelt and the Narrator, taking that great leap, or a chance if you may and plunging into the unknown, an uncharted territory; is by far the most corageous, wisest and smartest of all! He’ll come out valiant, victorious…a winner! No risks, no rewards after all so why the heck not?! LOL

    1. topazo says:

      Lol! Stupidity is fearing nothing! Very profound…. beautiful analysis ma’am

                Who wants to know?! Obama or Jonathan?! *Yinmu* LOL

                  1. Yemie says:

                    2. Yemie says:

                      Oh but that’s where you got it all wrong Doc! You see, it was the blindness of the eye I was plagued with, as much as you were with deafness when you asked ‘Did someone just say something’?! To which I responded ‘Who wants to know…?! So, this mind thingy’s all YOU! You need to go look into that! I dash you, spare me that! LMAO!

  6. zikaolofin says:

    This poem spoke to me in a way none other has. And Yemie’s comment/analysis of it just nailed it. Thanks both of you. This poem is for me, for keeps.

    1. topazo says:

      Awww….Zee, thanks for the kind words…to think that my words could make an impact, amazing!

    2. Yemie says:

      Thanks a bunch Honeycomb and a very Happy Prosperous New Year to you too! That analysis was spurred on by the masterpiece churned out by none other than the brilliant Doc; Temitope Ogundare of many talents and giftings, so I take zero credit! Will swing by your space real soon and come play catch up! Thanks again dear! I ‘ppreciate! LOL

      1. topazo says:

        I think I speak for everybody when I say that the analysis is richer than the poem itself

        1. Yemie says:

          Good thing that you ‘think’ Doc, you DON’T KNOW for a fact! Hmph! Let everyone speak for themselves plus, if there isn’t any post, would there be an analysis to be done on a blank, plain screen?! Beat it Doc, am not sold on your ‘theory’! Its all YOU! ALWAYS! Gba bee! LMAO!

          1. topazo says:

            Oya everybody please come and back me up o…

            1. Yemie says:

              Oldest trick in the book! Resorting to cheap blackmail now are you?! Biko, leave everybody be and accept the plain truth for all that it is! Forget the analysis, its all you! Has always been you all along! You, for always! Just take it and leave it be will you?! Thanks! LOL

              1. topazo says:

                no, no, no! let the others come and say their mind and then we will know what the ‘plain truth’ is

                1. Yemie says:

                  Well then, what can I say?! Have it your way Doc! I have already overstayed my welcome on this post anyways and this is my cue to leave! Enjoy y’all, peace out! I had fun, cheers! LMAO!
