The Future

The future is bright The past is dark In the present I take One step at a time The future is freedom The past is chains In the present I remove The links one by one I cannot live Chained to my past Cannot move into the light While shrouded by darkness So I stand in between The darkness and the light Break the chains And fly away. The future is mine The past is gone In the present I have hope The future is new The past is dead In the present I am healed.
