Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow

Yesterday gives me the sweet recollections of my youth, the innocence of the time.  The memories of the dark also exist here.  This is where the horrors live. 

Yesterday reminds me to forgive myself for the foolish girl that I was; the selfish choices, the poor judgement that was part of the process.

My past lives, loves, friendships and evil beings reside in the past.  Those that wished me harm are safely locked behind me, not allowed into the now.  

I pull myself up and out of the muck and the mud of yesterday’s that wish to bury me and cling I to the edges of today.  

Today is where the sunrises live.  It is where the sweet scent of my tomorrow is faint but tempting me to move forward.  

My tomorrow lies just beyond the horizon.  I am excited to begin the journey that will take me there.  My only choice to take me into tomorrow is to concentrate my efforts on today.  

I must remember to breathe in the day, examine each moment and savor every experience.  Now is the treasure of today.  Tomorrow is the treasure that awaits me.

*My mind has been on how we hold on to yesterday’s.  We can’t move past them.  Time goes so quickly and we are only only here for such a short time.  Don’t spend that time trapped in the past when the treasure of today is so sweet and the promise of tomorrow beckons.
