“TRYING TO FIGURE OUT YESTERDAY”
To live In the moment, that’s what we do as we take hold of today,
The past Is no more real, a memory, pictures In an album to recall.
The things’ we’ve lost and discovered In yesterday remain with us,
Wanting Is a feeling, an emotion of this our human nature.
What do we have today that we did not have yesterday,
A little more and a little less fore to figure out, don’t know why.
A waste of time trying to understand what’s been taken from a hand,
Nothing to be gained, only loss, precious time lost In thought.
So to the future, we walk with arms’ opened wide, what’s In sight,
To yesterday a goodbye as we no longer try changing the story.
Trying to figure out yesterday when life leads us the rest of the way.
