When Tommorow Came


When tomorrow came

We were the awakening songs of Princes,

The sweet wine of a wise emperor

See children dancing with her anthem

The young men are completely drunk in his delight

And the elderly, they open their mouths in awe;

The candor of our surge and swell


When tomorrow came

We were birds in Rehoboth;

Freed from the cage of Esek and Sitnah

Many lessons, many tears and wounds a year brings

Many blessings, many gains and worlds crumbled


Adieu, the blues that chained the soul of the nations

You made us cry, you emptied the hearts of joyful men,

You depleted the pockets of the merchant, you threw a century

Old legacy into the unknown, you untwine the fabric of unity

And like a rug; we were a laughing stock to the nations


When tomorrow came,

T’was the lessons yesterday taught us

That made us stronger and better.


I have seen this before, (my soul said) i

Have seen that before, I have touch this and that before;

My eyes have become wiser, and our souls have matured

Into a good soldier; resilient, unfazed, agile, and cunning


When tomorrow came

I told myself not to live in yesterday, but only in the wisdom of yesterday

I told myself, I told my friends, I told my family, that yesterday; we’d planted

Today, we will harvest what we had distributed into the soils of our hearts

They are a delight, those who listened to my words and ate it like the pilgrim’s loaf


When tomorrow came

We were an effulgence of an eternal ordination

Participants and co-labourers with the Beloved

And the nations came to our doorsteps


Don’t chastise my eyes, for what it sees in you

When tomorrow came, your feet were gold and

The 7 Portals that lead to the glory of the Friend;

Widely opened before your gaze —


The Friend said; “Come”

“Come into the multifaceted dimensions of my essence

Come into the reference of your dominion;

Swallowed into immortality.”

When tomorrow came

I was a theatre of the divine dance

And the nations came to dance with God
