Poetry: Today… today

March 24, 2023

I determined I was going to stay in today, today.

Still, yesterday kept drawing me and tugging at me.

Remaining firm in today, the camera of the yesterday’s

started flashing pictures of what had been real.

My choice had become a struggle to stay in today, today.

Photos playing as a movie in my mind of yesterday’s, today.

The movements in my today were so automatic,

I don’t have to be conscious of my actions, just do

allowing a space in between for thought to overshadow me.

Scrambling to stand strong, I look ahead to tomorrow.

Needing to see a better future, craving and clinging to hope.

Exhausted between yesterday and tomorrow

I realized another today has passed without me.
