Steps

Are all you really have.
Yesterday’s events are sealed
Beyond recovery
And tomorrow’s plans will only unfold
Tomorrow.
So whether today has been catastrophic
Or if it has been the best day of your life
The next sequence of events
Is not obvious
Nor set in stone,
And the next step may not be something
Worth posting on your wall
Yet from the greatest to the most pathetic
Every human experience has taken place one day at a time,
Even though each day is heavily scented
With tomorrow’s hopes and yesterday’s regrets.
All in all we do not choose the hands we are dealt
And we all wish, at some point,
That things would have gone differently
Yet whatever your lot
Your best and only option
Remains the same:
Another step.
