Another Day

Drawing, sunrise, with rays of light through clouds in a coloured sky. Caption reads: “Tomorrow’s another day.”
Another Day poem by Iris Carden

As I try to fall asleep,
I pick apart the day.
The things I’ve got wrong,
the mistakes I’ve made.

I think what I ought’ve done
to avoid it going wrong.
How I always seem so weak
when I mean to be strong.

I think back days and years
all the times I’ve messed up.
The steps from embarrassed child
to insecure grown up.

If I am to sleep at all,
I must pack those thoughts away.
I know I cannot change the past.
Tomorrow’s another day.

While you’re here…
