Why Tomorrow

written by: Brian Wayne Smith



Today is bright.
Why tomorrow?
Today has promise.
Why tomorrow?
Today could be better than yesterday.
Why tomorrow?
The sun is waiting to gently kiss the skin with warmth right now.
Why tomorrow?
Even though the thoughts inside my head are telling me that the fears that consume me are
“Only in my mind”
That is enough to say
“Maybe tomorrow”
That’s why.

Brian Wayne Smith

Published author that writes free verse, prose, poetry, research and most importantly from the heart. My writing has more of an urban point of view and style. Simply because I am an African American that have seen and experienced things that people of other cultures may never see. Though I'm hoping to share reading material that we all could respect and continue to be open minded about.

I'm a husband, father, business owner of BRAYNE, LLC, a clothing company that promotes positivity by way of fashion, a writer, a student and an electronic engineering test technician. Life is busy but I'm striving to live my dreams with my great family that I love deeply. There are times when I feel like a failure. Then I look at how many times I've fallen just to dust myself off and continue running the race. Now I can look around at my life and see that my "failures" were just locked doors that God wasn't ready to open yet.
