No Time For Yesterday - Poem by Vidushi Khera

Every day that I walked into
Carried the burden of the past
Time itself tried to hurt me
I was not gonna let it last

Flickering memories, broken dreams
I knew life was more than what it seemed

I knew I had to fight it out
Coz that was not what I was all about
I was more than what they treated me to be
So I gave it all away
No Time for Yesterday

Everyone looking down at me
Pointing fingers in my face
Rose through, broke free
Got myself out of that frikkin place

Future’s calling, tomorrow screams
Life is not what it has been

I know I have to fight it out
Coz they’re not what I was all about
I’m more than what they treated me to be
So I gave it all away
No Time for Yesterday
