A Child of Today

Yesterday’s son was angry

He longed for attention to take his mind away from his thoughts

He oppressed others to make himself feel more real

He needed control

There is no control

Not in this life

A life that is temporary


Learning of more than himself yesterday’s son finds comfort in nothingness

Reaching to new heights of his own inner self

Believing in things much higher than himself

Conflicted by the notion that he has no control

Knowing the anger is built on his own perception of life

A life that is temporary 


Yesterday’s son has left behind the hate he felt in his heart

He has walked past the trees he missed while looking for the forest

He has accepted his place in a life that is temporary 

Knowing his self from himself 

Looking into the void of nothingness 

He stops living for yesterday and becomes a child of today
