I Wore That Yesterday

The same frown...
The same sad face...
The same dismay
over and over ..

You said the same
mean words to hurt me. 
Today I choose
to wear smiles.

I have come miles 
since yesterday!  
The happiness I felt...
The freedom I have now...
Since you left 
and went away; 
Please in fact, 
don't come back! 

Putting me down-
Wanting to see me
with that same
sad face,with
that same 'ole frown. 
The same dismay.  
I can't wear 
those feelings 
anymore no way.

For I wore 
that yesterday.  
No complaints,
self esteem  
has risen.  
It feels good to be free
from your 
verbal prison. 

Nope, I am wearing a smile,
enjoying my new freedom.
No frown-no
feeling down-no dismay.  

Can't wear that outfit,
feeling like a misfit, 
see I wore that
yesterday! ....
     
No way can you 
taunt or daunt 
my spirit or depress 
my spiritual side.
No more can you 
appall or terrify 
or fill me up with 
apprehensions.
  
I am free! 
No longer disabled;
So ring the alarm-
I won't respond,
I have the courage,
The courage to say.
I am not wearing 
those feelings of dismay,
I wore them yesterday.
So say what you must 
and do what you will.

My spirit has 
traveled far from you.     
Today is my day.
So don't come back
to try and dress me in
that old tired suite,
made by Mr. Dis-May 
I don't wear that
label anymore ...  
I wore that yesterday.
