Dreading Tomorrow

Time ticking, seconds slipping
The dread is coming, creeping slowly
Slowly but surely, like death in its wake
Time ticking, seconds slipping

Why must time keep on going?
Why can’t it stop awhile and breathe a little
Or much more take a vacation like everyone else
Why must it keep on going?

My eyelids are dropping
I must not sleep, I must keep time busy
Lest I forget and find myself
At tomorrow’s grasp, helpless and sorry.

I’m dreading tomorrow
Every second that passes by are seconds nearer
To the trepidation that gnaws upon me
Foreboding, menacing the very core of my soul.

i know someone who used to dread TOMorrow. but he was able to outsmart him and eventually became his partner in crimes. his name is JERRY.

whenever i dread TOMrrow, i just tuned in to cartTOM network and watch with the boys. TOMdili show, pink panther, benten.

I'm OK DonG! The battle has passed, tomorrow wasn't that bad. Sometimes... one just have to get it over with. And once i've open up and taken everything in ...things went alot better.

win or loose... everyone comes out stronger and wiser.

thanks for the concern, aprreciated truly and deeply.

It was a big challenge Lawstude and no matter how busy i kept time through the night... tomorrow came and I just have to deal with it. And guess what? it wasn't so bad... sometimes one just has to get it over with.

thanks for the concern friend... sometimes it's all i need to go on... and face tomorrow (no matter how it will turn out).
