Only Yesterday - Alister Benn



It feels like only yesterday - That if felt like it was today 

The past and the future  - Wrapped in a combative ballet 

Fighting over the now 


But the now of then  - Was wrong  

I’m not him - Or there - Or how  - Not even why?

How can we plan out  - Possibilities

Based on inaccuracy  - Memories Of things  - That didn’t even happen

Too silly - too true


Beneath the jagged waves - of chaos and intangible vapour

Still waters run deep - And it is here, and now

That I can see clearly - Breathless and still

Looking out from within  - And Within from without

Each moment is enough  - For this lifetime

I’m too busy listening  - To the quietness

To dream of futures past.
