Sometimes it seems like I can turn around and touch you and other times you are but a distant memory, with missing pieces and and obscured images. As distant as you may be, your presence in my life has left quite an impact. You've haunted me and left me shaken with fear, you've guided my footsteps and lead me into places I should never have ventured. You have tainted my thought processes and tricked me into thinking that the reflection in the mirror was defined by you. You lead me to believe that I was not worthy and that trusting others was something I could never do. You have caused me to stay when I should have left and made me leave when I should have stayed. You have caused me to mourn what never was and chase what could never be. You have stolen too much sunshine from my days, only to replace it with storm clouds.
But you see, I have come to finally realize that though I may not have control of Yesterday, I can prevent it from having an impact on Today. Now I know that Tomorrow is up to me and that Yesterday is just that, a thing of the past..just a distant memory. Tomorrow is not carved in stone, because it has not yet occurred and the beauty of that, is that Tomorrow can be whatever I want it to be. Oh yes...that's right...Tomorrow is up to me!
So good-bye yesterday! I am sick of your lies, dark shadows and empty threats. I am sick of the way you make me feel and the toxic thoughts that you plant in my mind. I am sick and tired of you wasting my time. Yes...starting Today, I'm throwing away Yesterday away so that I can plan my Tomorrow! And you better believe...it's gonna be great!
