Looking Back

IMG_0774

To keep on moving forward
sometimes you need to look back,
and remembering where you came from
can help you stay on track.
 
It’s hard to know where you’re going
when you don’t know where you’ve been,
cause sometimes the road is circular,
and your back where you started again.
 
If you can make peace with yourself
you can run without being hounded,
and honor what you’ve been through,
cause to fly, first you have to be grounded.
 
So don’t forget where you came from
and everything you’ve been through,
cause the hurts and  the joys that leave their marks
are the things that make you you.
 
To keep on moving forward
sometimes you need to look back,
and remembering where you came from
can help you stay on track.
