I am the result of the past.
The past of my parents and of my ancestors.
My past defines my today and tomorrow.
It is up to me whether my past swallows me whole,
Or to grow from yesterdays mistakes and triumphs.
The choices I make and the paths I take now,
Shall decide my future.
What lies ahead – be it triumph or failure,
I will choose to accept my past choices,
Because it was me that made those choices.
For now, the future can wait.
The past can remain the past.
It’s today that matters now.
