Move Ahead Never Behind

Ahead the trees still call my name

Traces of my dreams they still remain

Behind is all that I have lost

Friends and family what a cost

Ahead is peaceful and so quiet

Never filled with chaos and riots

Behind is where I ran away

To places I never thought I’d stay

Ahead is the path of my choosing

I know I will never be losing

Behind it is time to shut the door

And forget the times I’d cry on the floor

Ahead it is time to take the path

And bask in the glow of the aftermath
