Tomorrow Is Another Day

Updated on September 1, 2013

What About Today ?

It was filled with so many twists and turns

Highs and lows

Smiles and teary eyes

Who is to say if years from this day

We will remember the lessons we have learned

Will this day be one of many that blend into a forgotten world

That is lived just for the moment and then dismissed as quickly as an acorn falling

Hitting the ground with such force but soon just one with so many others

In a world where even the best or worst moments in life can be cast aside

Like an old blanket that was your favorite for so long

Now just rolled in a ball forgotten and piled high

In the corner of the room

To take just a little extra effort and review what was important

Then finding the time to write about the actual events

The best you possibly can

For the time we have is valuable

How important or trival it may be

Is entirely up to you

Some people think what is done is finished and should have no place in our mind

It was just one task of many that overall means nothing

Then there are other people who are so busy on living and creating new times

Have no time to reflect on a second ago never mind hours that have passed

I like to think if we don't learn from our mistakes we may just keep repeating

Over and over the same lesson we never did learn

Now on the other hand if we look and exam our path and the events that unfolded

It is clear as day what direction we have gone

Now we can see if we are moving in a direction that will benefit us in the future

Then again we may have taken the turn a little to wide and realize we might be in great danger

So our immediate attention is required before we move on

These are only a few things my mind ponders

While my wife for one says good night

She often tells me this story is too deep and as long as your happy

Then as I try to explain I realize we are on two different planes

There is no right or wrong

Just a different view

One close up front and center or one with a birdseye view

Each may offer their own benefits and losses

In the eyes of the beholder

May each day be a treasure

That leads to endless pleasure

      DDE I believe we are all here on earth to learn from each other so that we may improve and become better.leni sands I have to laugh you are so kind.You only found one tiny flaw makes me so happy.I once sat with a writing teacher and thought she would guide me to make some neccessary changes to make my writings better.What a disaster.She wanted to put periods in every line and change my words so my piece flowed better.It wasn't for me.I try to correct some problems that I have with changing my tenses from past to present and grammar mistakes.I love all the help from many writers here on HubPages instead.I love changes like this that are simple and I enjoy your explanation even more.Nellieanna I can't tell you how much it means to me to see your smiling face on this rainy Sunday night.It is like the sky cleared up and the heavens beautiful sunny rays are shining bright down on the earth.Then a rainbow the largest one I have ever seen appeared.Followed by the sound of thousands of little voices first talking quietly and later singing sweet songs of praise and love.The greatest feelings of affection and sweet joy of peace has spread to each person as easily as snapping your fingers.Now I would love to continue but new ideas for another writing have been planted like seeds from the most fruitful of all gardens.So with a series of one hundred different smiles I must say thanx to everyone who has come to read my simple poems and it is my pleasure that you have let me entertain you for this evening.Please drop by at anytime and may my words tickle your thoughts and capture your enthusiasm for a love that is meant to be shared.Pleasant dreams to all that are a sleep and in bed already.Goodnight followed by a good day for those who want to get an early start.

      An interestingly structured piece of prose. Had to read it a couple of times to digest it properly and I really need to point out one tiny flaw - 'So 'are' immediate attention is required before we move on' - a common error of the use of 'are' : i.e 'Are' you going or 'are' we going.... or 'this is 'our' use of language - so the sentence should read (in my view) 'So 'our' immediate attention is required before we move on' - hope this is helpful.

      Enjoyed reading this, voted up!

      Each day should be treated with happiness and felt with love. There is no right or wrong just thoughts that make lives complicated and less talkative. You have written another great hub keep on writing and sharing your talent. I enjoyed reading Tomorrow Is Another Day.
