Life And The Past
By: Rick Flowers

And so we moved on, forgetting the past and all that had occurred
And in the years since that time, life has never been the same and the past remains undisturbed

I believe it is a good thing to leave the past in the past
To move forward, living in the moment, that is all we have
It matters not what you have done, but what you will do
Will do now, not yesterday, not tomorrow....but now

It is however, important not to forget the lessons we have learned
Life lessons that only experience of years can teach
Lessons that to some seem unattainable
Lessons that seem out of reach

For the young, listen to those that are older
They are wiser and have experienced life
They have grieved for loved ones and they have experienced hardship and loss
They have felt the darkness of depression, pain and strife

They are aware of their mortality
They are aware of the existence of God
They are aware of heaven and hell
They are aware that one day we all have to answer for the deeds we have done

In the end it matters not what others think
Only what you think and what you believe
God will conquer all in the end
Where you go is up to you when you leave

I thank Him each day that I am still here
But at the same time I long to be with him in his beautiful heaven
For the beauty he has created for us on this earth
Doesn't compare, could not compare to that which is to come

I thank him for each and every person
Who has passed through my life
Some were short-lived acquaintances
Passing like vessels in the night

Each one was like a shining star, some good and some bad
But each one had a purpose, and for that, I am glad

For were it not for those people
I would not be where I am today
I would not have made it through the darkness
I would have never been shown the way

It is now truly and only, up to me what I do with my life and where I end up.
What an awesome responsibility.
