Poem: Past, Present, Future Lives

Those before us locked in step with those to come,
The path may change as time marches forth,
But those past pass along the direction,
That we take to into the future.

They provide us with wisdom,
The knowledge of experience,
And fallacies of failures,
With actions and words.

So we keep those who have gone before,
Within our thoughts and measures taken,
As guides for determining our journey,
Through gifts we wish to give to others.

As we interact with the world,
Our souls flitter about, playing with others,
Giving and taking our heart energy,
Passing along our experiential being.

Those will come from our lives,
They who shape the world to come.
We hand over the wisdom of those past,
So that it may continue forth.
