Don’t Look Back


The sea at your feet

The wind at your back

The horizon in your grasp

The weight of the world pressing you down


cast your cares aside

reach to the future

grab the horizon

drag it towards you

let the wind in your back drive you forward


away from your past

write your own future

don’t repeat the history

let it keep you moving forward


like the wind

let your feet get wet

with the troubles around you

keep moving forward

stop and you will sink


your future awaits

do not fear the reaper at the rear

for he waits for no one

for today you fly

and tomorrow lies in wait

in eager anticipation

it is yet to be written
