Just Yesterday

Strange how we forget
Just yesterday it was us--
Just yesterday I was not allowed
I was denied the right to be
If you grew up in the US, attended elementary, middle,
and high  school in the states, why shouldn't you be able to
attend college in the states? Read more here.
And I all I wanted, was to live...
Just yesterday, it was my family
Denied their humanity,
Pushed aside and suppressed
Simply to aid someone else's ambition
And we didn't even want their throne,
We just wanted to live...
It wasn't long ago, just yesterday
When we were all running
All searching for a place to hide
Stumbling on each other
Fighting each other, killing each other
For the same chance--
Somehow at the end of the war
At the end of the race
We were all still standing here
Reminiscing on yesterday
When there was want
And we forget
That yesterday for us
Is today for someone else.

About

Author Image Author Image I love reading the Word of God. With prayer God's Word reveals so much: from comfort to temperance, from perspective to affirmation. Digging into the depths of the Word, cross-referencing history, language and time differences, is a passion of mine. In March of 2015 I decided to go back through the Bible doing an in depth study on each section I read. Eventually I decided to share my journal of notes as I partake in this journey. I hope you are blessed by God and inspired to pursue a deeper relationship with Him. I love reading and learning about God, nature, and science. I am interested in how it all connects. The Creator's fingerprints are all over his creation. We can learn so much about Him and how we came to be by exploring the world around us. Join me as I explore the world and draw closer to the One who created it all.
