Tomorrow is not the day my life will begin.
Yesterday is not when it ends either.
Regret will eat away at your mind,
Leaving you forever in yesterday.
Worry will eat away at your heart,
Leaving you forever in never.

Will I live today wondering if my 
grandchildren will regret this moment?
Will I live my life wondering if my children 
will be thankful for this life?
Will I live my life satisfying
your expectations?
Will I suppress my existence
because it makes no sense to you?

Or will I go bounding into my future?
Armed with my passion and faith?


With my eyes fixed on the Author and Perfecter,
does it really matter?




Does it?

*Opening my short arms wide and giving u a bigggg bear hug* - Jehovah dey and when we lean not on our own understanding but his and acknowledge him in all ways... he takes care of it all... It may not seem that way when we are in the ditch... and yet He whose eyes are on the sparrow carries you right now... So hold on tight to him dear... Take care *mwa*

I guess bear hugs will be plenty today because I'm extending my arms like Mwajim :)

ps: Your eyes on the Author & perfecter is the best place to settle them on. No one (or thing) comes close.

Change in the sense that you went from a gist giving sorta girl to this poetry abstract writer. Oh well as they say.. Change is the only thing that's constant.

I was wondering. by the time you see this comment you should be in a much better place emotionally...TG. I loved the poem, its another classic from you. Its with depth and feeling, and yet its still a good poem if I was reading it clinically without emotion.
