 Rubble of Yesterday…

Promises of the mind set aside in the days of youth;

visions stored in a hopeful place to become dim

memories and fade away.

A glimpse into the window of twilight time lays the

tombstones of yesterday’s promises; rubble covered

with reminiscent vine.

Embers burn within the soul, no peace can one find;

there are fewer tomorrows, weep for the uncertainty

of the future and of dreams left behind.

If you could turn back time would you trust your heart

to relive your life. Would you accept the future whatever

it may be, would you disregard truth and trust what your

eyes see?

Yesterday’s promises are hidden dreams, try to find new

excitement in your life, rid yourself of turmoil and strife.

Wake up your conscious your journey is not yet over, there

are new mountains to climb, forget the rubble of yesterday,

use wisely your time.

    Real estate is so expensive here in California that the rubble of yesterday lasts only so long, usually just one tax year because people can’t afford to pay property taxes on rubble, so they sell to a developer who builds cookie cutter homes that we all buy and pay taxes on. Oh, such an endless circle is life.
