Yesterday Doesn’t Define Today – You Do

They left on the flying carpet
My dreams and goals departed
When responsibilities moved in
Leaving a cluster of holes in my heart
Shotgun to my resignation
To this life that I have made
Everybody else’s hopes and wishes
Forgetting who I was before this
I can’t blame anybody else
Because I made the choices
I made the moves that I did
I could always have said no
Or taken another direction
But I didn’t
No matter the excuses
Of what I thought I had to believe
What I needed to do to be loved
And the constant temptation
To catch that carpet and escape
But today is today
No matter about yesterday
Nothing is set in stone
Micro adjustments step by step
Towards recapturing the escaped
And deciding what it is that I want today
