Yesterday & Tomorrow


If yesterday is in the past,
And tomorrow straight ahead,
Then why do I keep looking back,
At all the things unsaid?

If yesterday is given,
And tomorrow is not promised,
Then why should I look forward,
When it may never flourish?

If yesterday is set in stone,
And tomorrow just a dream,
Then why so dark and tainted,
Must it all now be?

The ray of hope now jaded,
And time keeps creeping by,
What happens to my misery,
What happens to my cries?

Holding on to the memories,
And living in the past,
Has doomed my future outlook,
As nothing seems to last.
