Yesterday

Yesterday, I walked along a young man's path
All the answers, they seemed so clear
My world was steeped in my dreams
Troubles came, as often troubles do
Seemed like nothing was going my way
So strange at first, I didn't believe
Far from myself the answers flew
Away I walked to seek a different path

Now I live a new wondrous life
It is far better than anything I had hoped for, the other self
looks forward, to a world beyond just me
As now I see more clearly with ancient eyes
Though I know youth will be served
They're going to arrive at this door someday
Here with the residue of the past
To dance along a silvery trail
Stay happy, as life's worth while
Oh, celebrate your youthly glow
I still dream with a young man's mind, I 
believe in a world of possibilities
In but a few moments, this life does pass
Yesterday is created every day

For Roy Jergen's "Yesterday's Acrostic Contest"

    You made yesterday into today and tomorrow. Treasure the memories of the past, keep moving forward, and making new memories to treasure when today becomes yesterday.

    So many different emotions does this stir; but regardless of them all, at the end it left me with a smile. Thank you Richard; it is beautiful.

    It seems as if you are talking about yourself. All the yesterdays have passed, but are never forgotten. all we can do is hope for a better tomorrow. I loved the poem. I am not depressed anymore I was a little, back in November. I'm alright now. Thanks for caring..... Lucilla

    You killed me with those ending lines! "In but a few moments, this life does pass/ yesterday is created every day"!! I've read just five or six entries for this contest, and let me tell you: this one is one of the best! Good luck in Roy's contest.

    Hi Herzel, read the first word of each line together, it is the lyrics to the Beatles song " Yesterday"
