All Our Yesterdays

Posted on Oct 1, 2013


I will keep dreaming

Picture courtesy of

Oh for times less complicated
back when things were innocent
When we were young and uninitiated
into the ways of adult ignorance

That carefree way long gone now
as we all slave away in our chains
Looking for an escape, not knowing how
left each with our individual pains

Others anger and mistakes we do take
like punch-bags to our very souls
We take it because we’ll break
if we lose our place in the fold

Only our dreams keep us alive
fighting for them everyday
It’s for that that we do strive
letting others have their wicked nasty ways

Oh for all our yesterdays
when most of us were happy and young
No-one would us betray
or from us would they run
