Yesterday some things happened that were not so pleasant to talk about. My
shattered as if I had never dreamed, my children grew up so fast and the
My loved ones died, I cried, and cried out without hope, friends used and
one by one. struggling to pay rent barely making ends meet.
Never looking ahead wrapped up in my past, wondering how long this madness
stuck in a time zone feeling lost and all alone, Knowing somehow if I did'nt wake
would soon be gone.
Not trying to make any changes, blaming everyone in sight, not moving ahead
around feeling as though I were dead.
I was holding on to yesterday with no hope for tomorrow, bringing my own self
the valley drowning in my own sorrows.
So now when I glance back at yesterday I will always remember, if I continue to
to yesterday, I will have no hope for tomorrow.
