When Yesterday Came Around Again

When yesterday came around again
I welcomed it as a long lost friend
I knew what to expect 
I knew what to plan
I’d done it all before 
It wasn’t hard to understand

I like things in rhythm
Towing the line
No room for adventure
It takes too much  time

All my hopes
Had long passed away
I accepted the dreariness 
Of the day

Without any anticipation
I gladly gave up exhilaration
Routine, mundane
Robotic repetitiveness insane

No original thought
Really no need to think
Give up all imaginations
And let your brain shrink

As the world marches onward
At a backwards pace
Get that pacified look 
Off of your face

Find something to do
That will cause you to think
Something to think that will
Cause you to question
Find answers to questions
That will ignite a fervor 
Let the fervor burn within your heart

Dream big, think big, care about something
and make it matter

    Wow, how did I miss this one, Mz Ladee..You've done it again--True message here that we all can relate to. Make each day count, do something out of the ordinary..Something fresh and exciting.."Dream big, think big, care about something and make it matter" I couldn't agree more.. Life is to precious to let it go to waste without living up to your potential or at least trying to..Nothing is out of reach..Live your dreams-it's not as hard as it may seem~Beautiful~ God Bless, huggss Tyesha

    You know Laurie, this really is a common sense write, the basics that we all tend to ignore as we get too much in the grind (putting our nose to the grindstone, so to speak)... very well written with the use of simple language conveys such an extrodinary piece. Best regards with love, (sending soupmail about something of importance) Cindy

    Good advice for a whole country filled with apathy. Vince

    Deeply introspective write. Every reader can relate in some way no doubt about it. Inspiring last two lines I personally take to heart. Nice work! Love, Shar

    You have felt what we all feel at time....the hum-drum of day after day, repeating the same old thing. Until you want to shout ...Enough!! Thanks for the inspiration to get off our butts!! :)

    I love this one! You just keep spouting them out, one great one after another. Introspection poems are one of my faves and you pen them well. Love and hugs to you from me :)

    Yes, in retrospect......If I had it to do over, knowing just what had occured, I might just do it worse. I like your ending. I hear some of the schools are short changing the arts. Big mistake, as it negates just what you are talking about. "Dream big." Love, daver

    I love this piece Laurie.. I love the message in the write.. I believe we should all find something that moves us in some way or the other.. something that stirs our emotions and makes us excited to be alive. The world is marching at a backward pace at time and we need a forward approach..very motivating write my actually put my mind in a sober state this morning..well done.
