From Yesterday

From Yesterday

A Poem by da_great

We share all the burdens anyway.

As clouds turn from white to gray
For it carries the burdens of yesterday
And as the world engulfed by its shadow
Then heavily let out its sorrow

Tender as a child, in the deepest corner
Quaver as she tags to her mother
Her mother's eyes are gray
Shivers, "It's okay, it's from yesterday."

Fragile as an elder, a foot in her grave
Opens her eyes from her sweet nightmares
"Who am I anyway?", feeling naive
"Surely from yesterday.", she dares

Who grieves the most anyway?
New buds of today? Curses from yesterday?
Alas! We're all big, yet we're small
Rains from yesterday, we have it all
