What lies in yesterday?

What lies in yesterday?
Only the dust and its fumes
Ignore and move on
To paths new and not trodden

What lies in yesterday?
Only heartache and dreams
Forget, and move on,
To the oceans new and its trance

What lies in yesterday?
The old music and rhymes
Of the old days and nights
The desert and its moonlit skies

What lies in yesterday?
The old note books and poems
Remember and move on
With your past and what lies ahead

What lies in yesterday?
The old childhood and places
The old dreams and birth of life
Travel through it like an adventure

What lies in yesterday?
Only the dust and its fumes
The old existence of mine
The old mirrors and its reflections!

    As I perceived it, this poem is a reminder of events of yesterday, but the poet wants to move on and forget about the past. We can also relate it to what happened in our country in the past few months or years, although it was terrible and heart aching, but we must move on and search for a better future.
