Yesterday Was a Wasted Today
by No. 1 Best Selling Author, Jaci Rae
How young and bold I once was. So full of life and hope that it seemed nothing else mattered. I walked along life's path stopping here and there. Hoping to make time stand still. Looking back on my past with such hope that if I stopped, I could go back to my days of innocence, free without worry for tomorrow.
I spent so much time reminiscing on days gone by, forgetting about today, until all my today's had already turned into my tomorrow's without my noticing that time was slipping through my fingers. And still I carried on. Trying to live the past, and dreaming about yesterday. But time kept marching onward, leaving me behind without a backward glance.
Now it's too late for me, I have my dream to live in the past, for now I am the past. All I have left are a few memories of my youth and a lot of regret for all of those empty years. I guess I knew how my life was flying by me.
But each time I thought of it, I spent more time trying to relive my past in hope that if I could go back and start new, time would give me a second chance. But you see, time never stops for those who linger along her road.
I should have realized that I should only dream about tomorrow, for yesterday is a dream past, today is a dream come true, and tomorrow is but a vision of a dream. I wish I'd known that when I was young.
