Forget the days of yesterday.
How pleasant they once were.
Today is here and I know it burns,
But please don't look away.
Stand up straight,
Brush off the flames,
Walk into the present day.
And soon in time, the blissfulness of those past days,
Will rub off on today

The author's comments:
I went to an amazing school with really amazing people last year, but so that I could get my drivers licence and so I could be in a writing class, I had to switch from my old school to a different high school with people that used to torment me in junior high. because of that I refused to get close to anyone at my current school which caused me to be depressed. One day, while I was sitting in a class, I randomly wrote this because I knew it was true that if I accepted them things would get better. The moment that the words were on the paper I finally listened to myself. Now, I have made new friends at the school, and I do not hate it as much.
