If yesterday left you unhinged,
For negativity lingers for a while.
If your soul is still in turmoil,
Take a big breath, and smile.
Pessimism blinds you to notice.
That the sun continues to rise.
It offers a path away from the precipice,
To cheer you up, I’m sure it tries.
So be brave and put a step forward,
Let yourself not be swayed,
by a history that deeply hurt.
For every yesterday,
there’s a brand new today ahead.
Some situations, you just can’t revert.
But you can decide on whether
yesterday will be a standard,
or an Outlier
– Daphne Melodia
Stay strong. (:
