The world goes up
and the world goes down
and the sunshine follows the rain
and yesterday’s sneer and
can never come over again
The best way to ruin a brand new day is to
stumble towards the kitchen and pour a cup of
yesterday’s bitter coffee. With a little more effort,
we could make a fresh pot, one more worthy of the new day.
There are issues to be dealt with. Working
through these issues is a difficult brew than
sipping on grudges and gulpint down self-pity.
Our new day hardly has a chance when we greet it
in this manner.
We need to pour out what is old and acrid, start
anew and fill our cup with sweet serenity.
This is a new day given to me by my higher power. I will
let go of bitterness and seek serenity.
