How easy it is at times to look back
Wondering how we arrived at this place
Reliving each of the moments in time
Bringing a smile or a tear to our face.
Each of those moments combined as one
The sum of who we’ve become in this day
Do we continue to keep them alive now
Do we put them in the past, walking away.
Never gone, they are what we learn from
But they don’t have to control our course
Mistakes and bad choices are a fact of life
Don’t let the past make today be any worse.
Yes it is easy to look behind and remember
But that makes it harder to stay moving ahead
So put the past behind and learn from it
Always looking for a better ‘You’ instead.
