What Tomorrow Will Bring

by Hanno van der Bijl


This world is pregnant with the next
Bulging out for all to see
Everyone looks in expectation
When will it come?
We watch, we wait, we work
Pain comes and goes
It rises and falls
It grows tense then eases its grip
Each time it feels like the world will end
And, yes, part of it does end
Faith pushes from behind
Hope pulls forward
Love stands fast
In the here and now
Transforming this world into the next
