Lost Day

Posted: December 2, 2010 in Uncategorized

A day


In a haze

In a daze

Of pain

Of discouragement

Has a purpose

A meaning

A definition

A reason


A lost day

Can act as a gauge

A stage

A page

To correct

To reflect

To perfect


Never look back

Over your naked shoulder

On what is gone

On what is lost

On what is not forgiven


See the future

Find the moment


Far and wide

Grab on to tomorrow


Tomorrow can’t hide yesterday’s pain

Nor its brutal indecision


At this juncture

I cast all doubts

All insecurities

All tears

Into the pitted valley of yesterday

A lost day

An isolated blip

A renewal of courage

Awareness of human limitation


I shall take comfort


Feeling stronger


At the power I behold

To have gotten through


A lost day
