Yesterday is gone
And with it are the shadows of my past
Nightmares that haunt me-even on these good days
I have faith that I’m forgiven
For the lies
For the anger
For the cutting

Yesterday is gone
And with it are the memories of my pain
Still so real
Still so much hurt
Still so many times when I want to quit trying
But I know I can’t
I have to keep going
I have to beat this battle
That I’ve lost for so long…

Yesterday is gone
And all that’s left is today
To change
To start again
To not let the past hold me back for one more moment

i often let myself get so hung up on wat yesterday held for me. i tried to write a poem from a different angle. not wat i did yesterday...but wat im leaving behind me today.
