Building the Future

As time moves on it eats the past,
where everything we thought would last
is wrapped in present’s new born robe,
and once again joins past’s abode.

The only thing that now is real,
is not the things the past did steal
but only things this moment share,
for present is the clothes we wear.

So dwell not on what’s gone before,
but use each new day’s open door
with memories and learnings bought
from everything the past has taught.

The future we have yet to see
but it's been made by history,
so cherish things that now have past
these craft a future meant to last.
