Yesterday I Thought I Knew.


Yesterday I thought I knew

Which way the day would go

But as luck and fate convened

Sweet vibes just would not flow.


Obstacles grew and smirked with glee

My plans were killed outright!!

And the day just ended up

Nothing but a massive fight!!


I thought I had it all planned out

I thought I’d smile all day

But ended up uttering words

It’s best just not to say!!


I went to bed with such a pain

Filling my poor battered head!!

It should have been a day of fun

But became a war instead!!


But today a brand new day is born

Banished are glooms and glums!!

The lesson in all this to be learnt

Is take life as it comes!!!


Take life as it comes

Acquiring are the crumbs

Knowing is life’s tutor

Each affair conceals a suitor.


Lifting emotions to a kingdom whole

Inside that troubled soul

Finding the way through the wilderness

Evening liaisons caress.


Always believe always stay strong

Softly the footsteps know you belong


Inside the heart answers galore

Teasing, playing looking for more.


Confident that day will dawn

Override that feeling forlorn

Meanings are hidden from the eye

Emotions to either laugh or cry

Sure of that blue sunny sky.

Thank you so much Vankatachari. Here's to so many more hubs for us to share on here.

Venkatachari M from Hyderabad, India on March 10, 2020:

Wonderful thoughts of life. I enjoyed each stanza conveying some good advice on life events. The Acrostic is beautifully created conveying that life should be taken as it is.

FlourishAnyway from USA on March 10, 2020:

I like the acrostic- a pleasant aspect of this poem.

Linda Crampton from British Columbia, Canada on March 09, 2020:

"Take life as it comes" is excellent advice. Thank you for the reminder and the inspiration, Eddy.

Demas W Jasper from Today's America and The World Beyond on March 09, 2020:

We are commanded to "be content in all things." It can't be a secret, for it's right there on the printed page. Learn to be content in all things, and God grants you His peace. Worth the effort? It is.

Peggy Woods from Houston, Texas on March 09, 2020:

I think that we have all had days like that. The good thing is that we have another chance at the beginning of each new day to start over and take it a day at a time.

Shauna L Bowling from Central Florida on March 09, 2020:

Eddy, I've had days like that. All is well, then suddenly something (or someone) erupts and violates the calm with words of scorn.

Love your acrostic poem. It flows well and makes sense. That's not always easy to accomplish with acrostics.

Bill Holland from Olympia, WA on March 09, 2020:

So very clever and so very true. The older I get the easier it is to take life as it comes. :) Thanks for the reminder, my friend.

Suzie from Carson City on March 08, 2020:

We're all happy to hear this, Eddy. You are such an important member

Eiddwen (author) from Wales on March 08, 2020:

Thank you so much Donna,Ruby,Pamela,Paula, Lirna,J8hn and Eric for taking the time to stop by and leave your lovely comments as always. Each one greatly appreciated. To answer Paula's comment it is lovely to be back and due to having bought a laptop now for the first time I can actually combine my full time job with hubpages so yes this time I am here to STAY.

Eric Dierker from Spring Valley, CA. U.S.A. on March 08, 2020:

Friday was great until about sundown, then my little self went all wrong. Saturday I expected some same. But good stuff, well the same stuff was going on but I somehow was happy. Until pain racked me up.

Today was busy but even keeled with fun of life.

At least we are not bored.

John Hansen from Gondwana Land on March 08, 2020:

Yes, Eddy, I think we can all relate to some days like that but we just need to put it behind and look forward to the next. Lovely poetry with a message.

Lorna Lamon on March 08, 2020:

Great advice Eiddwen wrapped up in wonderful poetry. Loved it.

Pamela Oglesby from Sunny Florida on March 08, 2020:

We've all had days like the first poem reflects. Take Like as it Comes is a good way to live as there is so much we can't control. I am enjoying your lovely poems, Eddy.

Ruby Jean Richert from Southern Illinois on March 08, 2020:

This is what I've missed, your wonderful poetry!
