Yesterday

dreams or illusions of living in peace and harmony In thinking about life's problems I didn't come undone images still float in the wind, music of the Harmonie The magical dream of people on earth living as one An adolescent desire of a world with a lasting peace let us justify a bad decision to stop sowing seeds or are we nomadic people, living like a flock of geese Life is following the one in front, unsure of where it leads with ideas, seeds are sown, establishing a path to peace Can we transcend innovations, to stop following the flocks to learn people exchanging views possibilities will increase listening to people and stop throwing metaphoric rocks "Yesterday, trouble was distant life a game to be played" Our people may be gone, but our past lets us be unafraid My angel seems far away, but memories will never fade all dreamers, vying in the game of life will never be swayed I still believe and long for yesterday for Beatlemania! contest of Heather Ober
