What We Are Today Comes From
Our Thoughts Of Yesterday,
And Our Present Thoughts Build
Our Life Of Tomorrow.
Our Life Is The Creation Of Our Mind
Quote Title: Buddha

Poem: Trina Graves

My thoughts of yesterday
Were cloudy and unclear
Overshadowed by the patterns
Of all those who I was near

Unguided and docile
I joined the massive herd
Plodding on through life
Not living as I preferred

But there came moments of Light
That sparked my inner core
I stepped on my path of truth
That led me to the Spiritual door

Discovering the energy of thought
Creates everything we live
I began to understand my life
And the effect of those I’m with

Now the negativity of my past
Thoughts of hopelessness and lack
Are dissolved from my mind
Knowing Source Energy has my back

My power is in each moment
Not the years, days or hours
If I focus on love, beauty and joy
My life will blossom and fully flower

*********

What We Are Today Comes From
Our Thoughts Of Yesterday
They establish and manifest

In all we do and what we say

Our Present Thoughts Build
Our Life Of Tomorrow
Are your thoughts right now

Building a life of joy or sorrow?

Our Life Is The Creation
Of Our Mind, is so true
Thoughts of love and joy
Will create a happy you

Trina Graves

      Thank you very much for your wonderful comment Anita. I have written inspirational poems over the years for the enjoyment I get from doing it, but then started to write poems using quotes as titles (and themes) to add something different to my quote website. Before I write a poem I pray for guidance and visualize the words being already ‘out there’ and uplifting people. So thank you for confirming to me that the words of this poem are so true!
      Love, Light & Blessings to you and all your loved ones.

    Thank you Amira for letting me know my poems are being enjoyed.

    My website only has a contact form for feedback and has over 300 pages of mainly quotes, so I rarely get any comments about my poems. It’s very heart-warming and encouraging to know my words are appreciated. I am very thankful for your sharing and everyone’s comments, especially the one above from Anita! 🙂
    Love, Light & Blessings to you all.
