    Though pains of the past still haunt
    like the shadow in a corner.
    The sound of hatred told yesterday,
    is still echoing in your head,
    and it seems to matter so completely.

    Promises have been broken,
    hearts have shattered on the floor,
    nothing seems to have changed.
    Once you had everything to lose,
    it is now lost;
    wilted and gone.

    Remember, dear friend,
    that yesterday is always behind you.
    Though regrets are easy to find,
    they should not direct the life ahead of you

    But, there,
    you look to tomorrow,
    searching for a sign of gold.
    When nothing you see seems bright,
    you throw your body down.

    How do you know tomorrow will ever come,
    are you sure of what is around the next bend?
    Do not look so far ahead you do not see the beauty that surrounds you.
    Is where you are standing now,
    looking everywhere but here,
    the place you want to be?
    The person you are,
    is it who you want to be?

    Forget the past,
    no matter how hard you try,
    screaming at yesterday will solve no problem.
    And though tomorrow should be prepared for,
    do not dwell on it,
    today has an importance above all.
    Your life is yours,
    do not spend your waking hours
    closing your eyes to today
    letting it pass you by.
    Today is all you have,
    Live it how you’re meant to.
    Be who you’re meant to be,
    without the interference of the future or past.
