***yesterday And Today***(What About Tomorrow?)

Poem By Theodora (Theo) Onken

The dusty lanes of yesterday
....Have been repaved with Concrete
...Nothing Iffy about my steps....
....In this day of loves bittersweet!

Back in the day of Rose coloured glasses
...Back in the day of the yellow
...Brick Road...
Back in the day when i could do no wrong, ha!
...Has been replaced by a heavier

I carry it with me upon my shoulders
...Broad and strong and tough
Remembering all of my yesterdays
...Recalling the situations i was in

Those dusty days and lanes are gone now
...Reality has bore her oft' ugly
And so i take softer and slower steps
...Remembering all the wrongs
...That i said...
For back in the days of yore
...Back in the days of
I was my very own worst enemy
...Always act before i would
And end up emotionally, and totally information poor

Comments about ***yesterday And Today***(What About Tomorrow?)

Thad and Andy thank you! Thad, you are correct, no one is perfect and we all make them. You are also right when you say is what counts is today! Boy did i learn, and learn the hard way! I still believe the saying from the Bible from a very alive Jesus: ' Vegence is Mine' Sayeth the Lord. This world is filled with way to much hate, and self hate is the worst...I am living one day at a time, and Andy, i do not want the Rose Colored glasses, as that is an altered eye sght...i am in the here and now. Thank you both, and may God be with you! Hugs, Theo
Mistakes everyone makes, can't go back to correct, only learn from them, today is what counts, tomorrow no one knows! Another great write Theo! ! ! A (10) ! ! Thad
This is so sad, When you become so Disillusioned with life, all the magics gone and what's left but a empty shell, well that's my own version of hell... Theodora i hope you find your rose coloured glasses again...

(((This Thing Of Ours)))

In the twilight of this quiescent moment-
I peruse this thing of ours-
Querying this palpable abtruse connection-
Am i deluded or wrongly perceived by the stars?

(((After The Rain)))

I missed you the other day
When the dew left its diamond glitter upon the grass
And the squirrels and frogs were frolicking merry
When the silence of daybreak calmed


It was in the Dawn of new beginnings
In a field so full of you
Armoured bouquets of Love
Covered by Heavens baby blue;

(((Early Eve Of Remember))) !

It t'was in the early eve of Remember- -
Before twilight had come around...
Where i found you with a basket of love so true...
And in the air t'was a melody of new loves sweet sound! ;


An ancient river carries your name-
In silver caverns so deep-
A Princess sits crying her heart out-
In the depths of sorrow, she continues to weep.

(((An Aubade)))

</></Oh such bitter sweet regret-
Comes the breaking of dawn...
'Tis much too soon, my darling
For you shall soon be gone;
