A poem for those who can't seem to decide what day it is... that they are living. If you can't live for today, live for yesterday's tomorrow. Don't over think it, else you may find your self spining in circles, then the magic will go, poof!

When yesterday becomes
There will be another fight
No matter how light...
It succumbs

The night decays
Into many days
Blurred by years that past
All of which last...

For tomorrow

Reflections keep on burning
Thick skin of maturity
Scared by insecurity
A world kept from turning

Can't decide today or tomorrow
A head filled with sorrow
To choose the better day
Perhaps it's yesterday?

For tomorrow

I don't know if I'm coming or going
Never mind yesterday or tomorrow
Anytime I happen to overthink I sizzle like
A sausage in a frying pan hissing and popping
That all stop once the heat is off

Ha! Mwhahahahahaha! A wee conundrum of sorts, aye! Smoochy
I get in to odd word play when I find a wee tickle from how they go.
When tomorrow will never come, when all you get is yesterday to live for, you must live for yesterday's tomorrow to pop out of it. Thus the elven magic. Hehehehehehehehe!
