The Pain of Yesterday

The pain of yesterday is calling my name today,
Promising me pain today,
Just like I felt yesterday.
I don’t want to cry today.
I don’t want to ask, “Why?” today.
I thought my heart was finished with that yesterday.
Please don’t bring me down today.
I can’t stand to be broken down today,
What was the point of yesterday--
When I feel the same way today?
I guess I’ll pray again today.
Just like I did yesterday.
Please, God, hear my prayer today—
Because the pain of yesterday is calling my name today.
