Is The Past An Answer

Do you ever question yourself?
How you have gotten by?
Have you another soul you would sell?
Or have you another survival lie?

To be given what you now know...
Would you want to change your past?
And to return with the knowledge you have to unfold
Wouldn't there be times as good and as bad never ask?

We are all as we are... made and sown
We yearn for change whether we want to or not
Every well kept secret... dying unknown
Are we strong enough to uncover our truths without a thought?

Can I tell you what I think?
I think we can change now if you want to
Because by changing will dissolve meant dreams
And to finally be what be needed to see a you

Do you want to go back... given what you know?
Or rather to change... given what you know now?
Is there too much life lived that is so hard to let go?
Or too much life lived that only a fantasy can unbound?
