A little poem from my random Bursts of Words collection.
Cheers to the yesterday that broke me, stole all I had until I was nothing.
It chipped away at my sanity and left me for dead.
Yesterday threw rock after rock at me until I fell over the edge.
It kept throwing rocks so I couldn’t climb back up.
Cheers to the yesterday that made me scream with rage until I cried with despair.
It drained me of my strength so I couldn’t fight back.
Yesterday was a nightmare that still haunts me.
I wake up in a riled panic because of yesterday.
Here’s to tomorrow and the hope it gives me that yesterday is over.
It’s the breaking of the storm and the pressure off my heart.
Tomorrow holds the sun that will light my days.
It’s the lifeline to pull me back up and back on my feet.
It’s the breath of air I’ve been holding all this time.
Here’s to the future unknown. It can’t possibly be as bad as yesterday.
