Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow

Yesterday met Today at the peak of midnight to pass along the torch of time.

“What happened to you?” Today asked.

Weary and heavily burdened, Yesterday replied, “Do not worry about me, for my time has come to an end. I will quickly begin to fade and eventually be forgotten. Do not worry about me, Today, for you will have troubles of your own.”

And with that, Yesterday was gone.

Today met Tomorrow at the peak of midnight to pass along the torch of time.

“What will you do?” Today asked.

Vague and heavily burdened, Tomorrow replied, “Do not worry about me, for my time has yet to begin. I will soon be revealed. Do not worry about me, Today, for you have troubles of your own.”

And with that, Today looked in the mirror to see its own troubles. Today no longer worried about Yesterday and Tomorrow. Today focused on its own troubles.
