Yesterday's Memories

Yesterday's memories are still a part of me
All the pain and the hurt, and all the misery
So much of the past is still present deep within
I need to be healed, so that my new life can begin.

Today is a new day: yesterday is the past
Yet the trauma lingers on, in the shadows that it cast
Many who are unthinking will say: Just  let it go
But the wounds deep inside have a process that is slow

As long as they keep appearing, I cannot fully see
The  potential that the present has in store for me
So I will keep on trying to sort this stuff inside
And remember much is hidden from all the world outside.
