A Glimpse of Time

By Saidu Bangura, Praia, Cape Verde.
Yesterday is gone
leaving only traces
to reflect upon, to change,
to make perfect, real;
Today, my challenge, is here
mirroring yesterday’s aspirations;
Tomorrow, my hope,
will reflect today’s work.

Yesterday, today and tomorrow
are intertwined in me;
My yesterday is my today,
Today has shadowed yesterday;
Today is encroaching upon tomorrow;
Tomorrow will reflect today.

Yesterday and today are
laced in me as I walk towards
Tomorrow, my destiny.

with my back on yesterday,
I aim at tomorrow
with hope, faith and determination.

Praia, 21.12.2016.
