Yesterday I Thought I Knew.

Updated on March 8, 2020

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.

      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.

      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.

      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.

      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.

      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.

      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.

      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.
