Yesterday Today Tomorrow

~Yesterday~ I stood confused in a hole so deep So dark and miserable, cold and alone Scared and fearful of the unknown Nothing but grey clouds filled my sky Filled with rain and thunderous roars Deafening like a million slamming doors Drowning out the real me Like a caged up bird Longing to be free My last tears were spent Done and dusted On my last pretense. ~Today~ I've dug, like never before Fingers, tired bloody and sore I've dug right down to my very core Dirt under fingernails and a tear stained face Fighting to get to my happy place Dragging myself to the top of my pit No longer content to be miserable Not ready to give up, not ready to quit On the caring shoulder which you gave me to lean I've scrutinized things about myself I've never seen From start to finish and all in between You took my hand And tenderly walked with me on the road of my soul Never rushing or hasting Just happy to stroll With gentle nudges along the way Just quietly listening to every word I had to say With every word came down every defense Till I was vulnerable and raw And it finally made sense. ~Tomorrow~ I'm going to sit so quiet and still Listening to the whispers that once were a shrill A screaming voice yearning to be heard No more am I that caged little bird No longer torn or broken down No longer disrespected or pushed around My grey clouds lifted, the sky finally clear No more constraints that I have to adhere Happy with the way I feel Giving my heart time to heal Time to spread my wings and fly As one by one these binds untie Satisfied knowing what will be, will be Finally knowing its enough just to be me.......

    Great write, Tracie! Enjoyed the journey you took us on and especially the line Listening to the whispers that once were shrill... I "feel" that one. Hear it, too. Hope you are well. You're in the midst of winter now, I believe? Uck. I like winter for about two weeks and then wish it would just go away. Hope you're keeping warm and taking care of you. Hugs, CYndi

    This is a poem that I can use as a book mark in my fav book. Especially the last section of it, it came home with a passion of truth that I truly understand and associate with, to my princess I say, you'd be a rub in any prince's crown, by happy my girl, your a fleeting star in heaven that brings only light, my love, vie

    oops made a few booboo's tracie, it's early morning bloopers, I meant to say ruby instead of rub, and be happy instead of by happy, I apologize for the mistake, xxxvie
