-note to the readers
sorry that this is coming in at such a late date...i have been away from Passions for a little bit and just got back and saw this challenge. thought i'd give it a try. thanks to all for reading.

Promises of Tomorrow, Memories of Yesterday

Onward and forward I must go
Never to look back at yesterday
Tomorrow holds the best of what I yet to know
Must keep on moving, reaching for a new day

Promises of tomorrow so brilliant and sweet
Memories of yesterday, pushed back
Moving onto better days is no small feat
Never will allow the pain or loss to attack

The chains try to hold me down, try to hold me tight
I break free, to reach for the sun
Never to allow my shadows of the past, always continue to fight
My life holds many special dreams, it's only just begun

I don't have all the answers, but I learn more as time goes by
Closing my eyes, I pray up to the Lord above to give me strength
Growing stronger by the minute, even as I cry
I will never give in...new horizons I will reach for at any length

Memories of yesterday tucked safely on a shelf
Promises of tomorrow are within sight
I am now beginning the discovery of myself
Walking out of the darkness forever, surrounded by God and his celestial light.

 Some things cannot be explained by verses that rhyme,
They are not measured by the commitment of time.
Some emotions run too deep to be described by words,
Forgiveness and understanding-remain the most beautiful words ever heard.

Promises of Tomorrow, Memories of Yesterday
The perfect answer to the new horizon poem.
I really enjoyed your poem, fantastic
though, "Never to look back at yesterday"
I don't know, it is nice to reflect on the past but foolhardy to try and live in it.
I will shut up now, just to say I am glad you posted this, great poem.  

==========================================
Onward and forward I must go

Memories of yesterday, pushed back
Moving onto better days is no small feat
Never will allow the pain or loss to attack

Beautiful job Amy...my favorite lines..Memories of yesterday tucked safely on a shelf
Promises of tomorrow are within sight
I am now beginning the discovery of myself
Walking out of the darkness forever, surrounded by God and his celestial light.
