As I reflect back, I see many things
At one time I wasn't strong enough
I was naive to think I knew myself so well
I had believed I was true to myself
I had thought today was a long time away
Now here I stand in yesterday
Wanting to know of tomorrow
Realizing it is not as far off as I once thought
Knowing what I do now
Never again will I assume so absurdly
That life is what you made of yesterday
It's what you do for tomorrow
That will give you the wisdom and strength
To live a life worth living
We all make mistakes
