Clean up the slate

Tomorrow shall come; the aftermath of the past

Yesterday was present in all that has breath today

It came with all it had; a box of gifts or a cache of grief

Some packages came suitably as soothing cushion or balm

Others were hurled as bricks; tearing down everything on its path.


When goodness took up residence, we felt shielded like warmth in wintery weather

We laughed at the tickle; the profound joy that it brought

Celebrated the successes; endeavours wearing the crown of victory

We cheered and clinked glasses to continuity; an endless stream of happiness

We danced to the beat of triumph, in hard and freestyle fashion.


When pain thrived, it wreaked hopes and goals

We bled of tears; saddened by the disappointment that rubbed in

Expectations were torn apart, lost in the tsunami of failure

Emptiness overwhelmed the atmosphere; a vacuum like utter silence reigned

In disbelieve we mourned our fate, the seeming end of a dream.


Yesterday is past and today is here; the triangle of life is pending until tomorrow is born

Waiting in the wings; the arrival of a new day, a fresh hope, another chance

Like yesterday and today, tomorrow shall bring forth another package

Either the chances to laugh, cheer and dance, or suck in the bricks of pain and tears

Beside God, tomorrow is unclear; hidden in the womb of the unknown


Do not contaminate tomorrow with the filth of yesterday

To pour new wine into old wineskins is a warm-over of the old order; “…the

skins will burst, the wine will spill and the wineskins will be ruined” (Matthew 9:17)  

Today is a time to wipe the slate of old; the period of new beginning

An opportunity to retry or start afresh; to take a better shot at your dream

It is a time to refrain, amend, correct; straighten the crooked path


Cash in on today; the negotiating chip between the past and future

Seek the ever-present help (Psalm 46:1); access your destination via a novel route

Jettison the ways of yesterday; ask for a new song, place your trust in God

Try a potent partner; He that offers you the strength to do ALL things (Philippians 4:13)

Clean up the slate; wipe off the dirt and start anew.
