Stronger than yesterday...

Thought I was done, finished and 
worn out. Didn’t have any new reason
to fight. I tried to make things right
instead of learning from this and moving
and realizing that I’m a different person
than I was yesterday. I know what I want,
I know what I need, I know what I needed 
to see. I learned who I am now and that...

I’m so much stronger than yesterday.
I’m so much wiser than yesterday.
I’m more ambitious than yesterday, as
I look at tomorrow with no sorrows 
or regrets, I don’t want to forget the past
it made me who I am. Stronger than I was
yesterday. 

Brave for today and every new sunlight 
to rise and every moonlight to set and 
express that I am so much stronger than 
yesterday. 

I used to pass by the mirror and feel like
I was nothing like I was wasting my time.
I couldn’t see anything else but me trying 
to be happy when I was clearly breaking and 
I was taking shots to make the pain disappear.
I saw a reflection and no chance of finding 
the right direction until I realized that it 
was right in front of me.

I’m so much stronger than yesterday.
I’m so much wiser than yesterday.
I’m more ambitious than yesterday, as
I look at tomorrow with no sorrows 
or regrets, I don’t want to forget the past
it made me who I am. 

Waves of pressure make me into the indestructible 
steel, made all of the pain worth it, and that me 
being here was real. I was who I am today which
was stronger than I was yesterday.

Yesterday is gone, but the lessons are
here to stay. Letting me know who I 
am today and that I’m stronger than yesterday.
That I’m better than yesterday, I’m new a
person today. Living like steel that won’t break, 
living like a fire that can’t go out, living like a 
waterfall that is stronger for the rest of its days. 
I’m stronger than yesterday.

So much stronger than yesterday.
