MY PAST IN MY LIFE AHEAD

 

IN THE LIFE AHEAD LIES THE TOIL OF MY YESTERDAY,

IN THE LIFE AHEAD LIES THE HEAT OF MY TODAY,

AND IN THE LIFE AHEAD SLUMBERS MY UNRUFFLED DREAMS,

WAITING TO UNRAVEL,

IS WHEN MY UNKNOWN LIFE AHEAD TOW-CHAINS WITH MY PRISTINE PAST.

*

AND IN THE CANTABILES OF TODAY LIES THE UNRESTING REHEARSE,

AND ALL ALONG THE SOFT DRIBBLES OF THE WINDING BROOKS,

LIES THE HARSH AND CRUEL NATURE,

YET LIFE AHEAD ONLY BELIEVES IN ITS BLOATED EGO.

*

SANITY SAYS FORGET THE PAST ENJOY THE PRESENT FOR FUTURE IS UNKNOWN,

BUT I SAY UNKNOWN IS UNKNOWN TILL IT IS KNOWN,

SO BE WITH YOUR PRESENT,

AND NEVER DUMP YOUR PAST,

FOR BRIGHT DAYS AHEAD WILL ONLY EVOLVE OUT OF YOUR VIBRANT PAST.

*

AND BETWEEN THE FLASHY TODAY AND THE GLAMOROUS TOMORROW,

EXISTS MY MOTHER OF LIFETIME-MY PAST,

THAT HELD MY HAND AND SHOWED ME THE WAY.

*

AND WHEN THE FLASH DWINDLES AND GLAMOUR RECEDES

MUCH EVAPORATES AND LITTLE IS LEFT IN THE DAYS AHEAD,

BUT A TREASURE TO APPLAUD,

IN THE REALMS OF PAST AND THE BYGONE DAYS.

*

AND THAT IS WHEN I REALISED,

THERE IS NO FUTURE WITHOUT A PAST,

BUT THERE IS A PAST WITHOUT A FUTURE.
