A Paradoxical Relationship

Everyday my eyes burst open.

Everyday I become someone new.

The person I was yesterday when my eyes closed is now gone, 

and he teaches me how to change.

I was not perfect yesterday, 

nor am I today.

However, I tach myself to be better than I was, 

to be the person I wished to be yesterday.

Everyday is a new chance.

Everyday I am someone greater.
