Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow
There are two days in every week about which we should not worry,
Two day in which should be kept free from fear and apprehension.
One of these days is Yesterday with its mistakes and cares,
Its faults and blunders, its aches and pains.
Yesterday has passed forever beyond our control.
All the money in the world cannot bring back Yesterday.
We cannot undo a single word we said,
we can’t erase a single act we preformed.
Yesterday is gone.
The other day that we should not worry about is
Tomorrow with its possible adversities,
its burdens, its large promise and poor performance.
Tomorrow is also beyond our control.
Tomorrow will rise, either in splendor or
behind a mask of clouds – but it will rise.
Until it does we have no stake in
Tomorrow for it is as yet unborn.
This leaves only one day – Today –
Any man or woman can only fight the battles of one day.
It’s only when you or I add the burdens of those awful eternities
– Yesterday and Tomorrow – that we break down.
It is not the experience of Today that drives people mad
– it is the remorse or bitterness of Yesterday or
the dread of what Tomorrow may bring.
Yesterday never saw Today & Today will never see Tomorrow.
So therefore let us live but one day at a time.
