Yesterday I Cried

Yesterday I cried, because there was nothing left to say, feel or do, but cry, I cried for all the times I was too afraid to shed a tear in the fear that if I did I may never stop...

Yesterday I cried, I cried for a soul that aches with a sorrow so deep I actually feel I may drown in it, an endless sea of hopelessness, self doubt and heartache...

Yesterday I cried, because there was an anger so deep and so real, I thought it might eat me alive, overwhelmed with a hate that looked sure to devour my soul...

Yesterday I cried, for the eternal optimist that once was, but is no more, for the carefree spirit I used to be, that has lost it’s way and the ability to believe, hope or dare to dream...

Yesterday I cried, for me, for innocence lost and strangely I even cried for you, I cried for the man I thought you were and the stranger I will never know or care to understand...

Yesterday I cried, for days gone by, for a shinning future lost, for the hurt I feel today, I cried for your unwillingness to take responsibility for your actions and all the lives that you have destroyed, including your own...

Yesterday I cried, for the darkness that has stained your soul, the web of lies you’ve spun and the trail of deceit that is now your chosen path. I cried for all the days that I did not have the courage to stand against your tirade...

Yesterday I cried, because I am so sick and tired of being sick and tired, feeling lost, hopeless and weary, I cried for all that has been lost and in the hope peace, dignity, integrity and justice will be found...

Yesterday I cried, in the small hope, maybe one day I wont want or need to cry, that a glimmer of something brighter waits on the horizon. I cried in the hope that tomorrow will be a better day, a brighter day and maybe, just maybe holds a reason to smile... 

Yesterday I cried, but not today, today is a new day, unmarred and muddied by the sins of yesterday, I stand bravely and walk in to an unknown tomorrow with a prayer in my heart and a new determination...
