I look over my shoulder and stare at my past
And use it to define my future.
I judge the new in my life by the old
and force myself to believe that it will be the same
that my life will repeat so I must always be watching.
I look over my shoulder and view the life behind me
Trying to put emotion aside and glance at the pain
To see the truth and heal.
I look over my shoulder and then back to my life.
This moment is the one I want,
Undefined, patterned or shaped by anything but my own choice.
Present, calm, and focused on my dreams and the love that is all around me.
I glance over my shoulder and see only love.
