You Can Make It Today - Poem by Albert Maier

You can make it today
Don't dwell on yesterday's sorrow
You can make it today
Dismiss troubles that fell your way
Wipe clean the slate - do not borrow
needless pressure from tomorrow
You can make it today.


A damp west wind blows through the trees
Sudden darkness brings on a gloom
Harsh thunder echoes in the breeze
Lightning flashes brighten the room
And heavy rain crushes the bloom
Of fresh flowers in my garden.
Mother Nature's at her worst again.
