Yesterday visits in glossy dreams
Most unpleasant some serene.
Visions once erased from thought
Invade like covert missions fought.
Childhood tainted with blasts of pain
Grownups memories selectively wane.
Today brings promise of changes sought
Through hard work and demons fought.
Learning from past mistakes made
Saying goodbye to yesterday.
All grown up with responsibilities
Occasional visits from yesterday.
Tomorrow looms with uncertain promises
Hopeful infiltration of lifes best.
Working hard to forgive and forget
Making amends for yesterdays sins.
Perfect humans do not exist
Constant changes until all ends.
