Rubble of Yesterday…

Promises of the mind set aside in

the days of youth; visions stored

in a hopeful place to become dim

memories and fade away.

A glimpse into the window of twilight

time lays the tombstones of yesterday’s

promises; rubble covered with reminiscent

vine.

Embers burn within the soul, no peace

can one find; there are fewer tomorrows,

weep for the uncertainty of the future and

of dreams left behind.

If you could turn back time would you trust

your heart to relive your life.  Would you

accept the future whatever it may be, would

you disregard truth and trust what your eyes

see?

Yesterday’s promises are hidden dreams, try to

find new excitement in your life, rid yourself

of turmoil and strife.

Wake up your conscious your journey is not yet

over, there are new mountains to climb, forget

the rubble of yesterday, use wisely your time.

    Powerful thoughts…powerful thoughts throughout this poem! Yes, trusting my heart has brought me much sorrow…but I still would not trade it…for on the other side of sorrow, I see I love deeply…
    Wonderful reflection…and how important that you lead us on to the NOW…thank you!
