Yesterdays and Tomorrows

I ask you now is this my plight
I cry out to you all through the night
My tears run dry, my heart still stings
My soul seeks solace but no peace it brings

Words expensive hang in the air
They wound so deeply, 
The air so thick
On the thorn of a rose 
Did my finger prick

A drop of blood from innocence lost
Can't be regained no matter the cost
Is this my lot to live and die
To find no comfort when I cry

To seek with all that is within
And know I must begin again
A brave new world
A hard new truth
A past that I will never elude

    Laurie, this one speaks to me . I find myself crying days and nights from thoughts of the past. It seems like the past will always be with us, but I do have hope for tomorrow. You never know what tomorrow may be until you live it. Very sad indeed when you cannot escape what haunts you so deeply inside. I'm sorry for all your pain, stay strong. I pray the day comes when I can fully put it behind me and I pray that day arrives soon for you as well..Optimism holds here...Love & Hugs, Tyesha

    Laurie, i love this poem! And these lines are magnificent: "On the thorn of a rose /Did my finger prick/A drop of blood from innocence lost" ...so beautiful! And the title! Very inspiring. Ruben.

    How sad that we can never truly escape from our pasts, Laurie. We can, however, learn from our mistakes and try to muster up the courage to face "A brave new world." Thought-provoking write!

    This is definately write I can relate to. I find strength in the fact that I know the past is the past and that is where it must stay but there are days that those old memories haunt me and bring sadness into my life. Great writing on this sad but beautiful write. Smiles from Lolita

    Everyone always says, "You'll get over it" Of course you will, around the day you die. Seems few are immune, certainly not this person. Good write, Laurie. Love, daver

    So many hearts will identify from this feeling of never escaping from the past....your words are so filled with honesty and sadness...some things wound so deeply.....I feel the thorns within your poem. We have no choice, but to carry on. (A little love from friends sure can help! loveudo)

    Oh that last verse is quite painful. I am hoping you find what it is you seek, that which will indeed comfort you when you cry and so much more, that it does somehow even make your hurtful past seem ever so distant. You write so beautiful, revealing and honest from deep within your heart and soul. Love, Shar

    Laurie we cannot relive our past, only learn from it. I pray this day finds you well and you know joy and more happiness than you can contain, God Bless my dearest friend, Ron
