Path Of Yesterday


A cool breeze skims the lake

Bringing tranquil thoughts

Memories of long ago.

 

A sign of tomorrow,

A sign of today.

Life’s beginnings

And Life’s end.

 

Some believe the end is the beginning.

Others believe it is the end.

Some will say tomorrow will never come.

Other say we are never promised tomorrow.

Only our Faith that the Sun will rise.

 

Taught in the Old Ways.

Seeking the New Ways.

Embracing Old and New.

 

Some find a road to travel.

This road can take us many places.

Others follow a path.

And a path can take us to those same places.

 

Lessons from the past are needed here.

Taking only what we need.

Greed is an evil thing

Giving back more than we take.

 

These lessons were taught long before the “white man’ came.

They were handed down mouth to ear.

Today they are still handed down mouth to ear.

Nothing was ever written down as it was not necessary.

 

Traveling the “Red Road” as it is called.

This tells us that we have been greedy.

We have taken much more than we have given back.

 

Many lessons from another belief tell us that “Man will destroy Himself.”

Would that mean that taking more than we give back will be our end?

 

A sign of Tomorrow.

A sign of today.

Life’s beginning

And Life’s end.

 

It all depends

Not on one but all.

It all depends

Not on all but one.

For the need of all

Is but a planted seed in life.

 

If a change is in line.

A great revelation will appear.

Only if we embrace yesterday.

And if we bring yesterday into today.

 

A cool breeze skims the lake

Bringing tranquil thoughts

Memories of long ago.

 

A sign of tomorrow,

A sign of today.

Life’s beginnings

And Life’s end.
