Yesterday Is Gone, Today Is Here To Stay©

Yesterday

My name was unknown

I sat in a corner and I wept

I laird my clothing because

My scars were all you could see

I feared you’d follow my every move

My direction was unclear

Nothing and no one was there to help me

Leaving my needs unmet

Nothing I wanted could be obtained

Making it seem that my desires were unimportant

No one wanted or needed my advice or savvy

Causing my knowledge and skills to be underutilized

Today

In spite of everything

I’ve left all behind

Those who need to know my name do

There is no hint of emotional or physical scaring

I have found both my way and my voice

There is no need that hasn’t been met

All my hopes have now been realized

And

My knowledge has helped to heal many

Thank you for my new lease on life
