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
