I am, as you see me today;
The me of yesterday you do not know…
Today, I’m lost.
In alien territory, completely unfamiliar.
New roads to take; new turnings to make…
Today is a new day,
Today everything seems different
Today is not like yesterday
And I feel as though yesterday cannot help me with what today brings,
So new is today, that I feel unprepared…where did the familiar go?
Yesterday I knew who I was
Yesterday I had no doubt in my mind,
Yesterday I my life was complete
Yesterday I controlled my own destiny
Yesterday the world was my oyster
Life felt so sweet, so good
Yesterday I had no doubt that today would be a good day
Ah…Yesterday; the day that today started!
Today I am forced to abandon yesterday’s thinking
Today I am forced to adapt my behaviour of yesterday,
Today, no-one knows the me of yesterday
They see me as I am today, they think I understand today, they think they know me by today
No-one knows the me of yesterday…but, yesterday has gone…
So what remains is Today – another day to learn more about the me of today
Today I’m learning… I’m learning how to remember yesterday
Today, I’m learning how to bring back life to the me of yesterday, so that tomorrow I will be who I am meant to be.
This is my story and my passion – this is my yesterday, today and tomorrow.
