#85 of 365 – “yesterday’s tomorrow”

“yesterday’s tomorrow”


I am too dark

it seems,

too prone

to the shadows


I act frightened

by clouds

and bright colors

and meadows


I need help,

need my shaded

ground broken

and harrowed


need the light

to burrow down

into my soul

and bone marrow


need the loud

muddy voices

hushed to a thread

of past sorrow


and today

to be the realized

promise of yesterday’s
