From The Past to the Future

From the past to the future
From the future to the past
It is comforting to know,
That I am not alone.
For my God is there
To help me, to guide me.
He was there in the past
He will be there in the future
To all of those,
Who believe in Him.

From The Past To The Future

From the past to the future
From the future to the past
It's comforting to know
That I am not alone.
For my God is there
To help me, to guide me.
He was there in the past
He will be there in the future
To all of those
Who believe in Him.

I am Qalme Tari Mistress of Death Nat Norville.

Coming Out From The Past

She is
Coming out from the past
And she is having trouble accepting the future
Because she knows that she will have to adjust
Her life to the future everyday
By living her life to the fullest towards the future

Running From The Past

i keep running,
but looking back as well,
i try,
not to cry,
but the tears flow freely,

i continue to run,
i trip,
i fall,
i am burning in hell,
the past catchs up to me,
it kills me,
takes my life,

i run from the past,
but i am really,
running towards the future,
its where i see the light,
when i dont have to fight,
when my life,
is now mine,

unill i reach that,
i will always be,
running from the past.

The Past, the Future

This is my future
this is what I want
I know this feeling
never once fulfilled
but I say to myself
I know this feeling
this time it's stronger,
this time I feel it
growing in my heart
I know
this is my future
this is what I want
to forever feel this love
growing in my heart
I know how much she loves me
she knows I love her
or at least she tries.
its hard for her, I know.
her heart closed up
from love gone wrong,
a long time ago
but I'm telling you now
you cant change the past,
but you can change the future,
and that is what I'm going to do
make a new future,
everything she hoped for.
I know she cant forget the past, and
neither can I.
but I only hope,
i can make the future better.
because this is what I want,
she is who I want to spend
the rest of my life with.
and to heal her heart,
all I ask,
Is to make the future,
better than the past.

The past is unlike the future

The past is taken as guidance
But the future failed to live up
And it upsets your apple heart.
There is no alternative either.

Something From The Past

I have something I'd like
to show
Something from the long
ago

Tied with ribbons in the
past
Something from a treasure
chest

Precious pieces interlock,
Like golden threads, in a
frock

Everything comes into
view
you're in this picture too.

The Past, Now and Future

the past is what makes me, me
the now is what i choose to be
the future is what i cant see

if i live in the past
the now wont last
the future comes fast

the past was bad
the now is sad
the future has to be glad

the past is over and gone
the now is here, so i go on
the future is soon to come

This Despair Will Be Pushed Into The Past By Future

This despair will be pushed into the past

Yesterday was surely tomorrow one day
Definitely tomorrow, today will be yesterday
One day hopefully tomorrow will be today

The past surely was the future one day
Definitely tomorrow the present will be past
One day hopefully the future will be my present

on a Sunday back to the past that Papa left

on a Sunday
the man returns to the sea
to clean the foreshore
teeming with coconuts
from thick grass
bad grass and beetles
that eat buds and
kill

on a Sunday back
to the past again
clearing some forests
of memories
therein

one seeks a redemption
for what had been
putting some seeds again
as anticipations of
the future
that may never come

As the Future Takes Over the Past

What is the past,
but the past
And the present,
but the present?
It is the future that
one must focus on.
Release your past
let it roll off your shoulders
yet in the end if crying
is what you need to do,
then cry release
your sadness
release your
problems
Grasp the future
with both hands
and don't let go.
Feel the future
change you
and allow the change
to come as the future
takes over
the past

The past, present and future

I was the usual detainee who stood out of the class most of the time.
The lean English teacher who has a slight dimple on the chin when she smiles, once called me in and asked me to write three sentences the past, present and future tense.
I wrote them without any hesitation.
***************
1.They built massive bridges.
2. They build massive bridges.
3. They will build massive bridges for whom and where do you cross?

School Photos from the Past

They loved the school activities
Took part and did it well
When you see old school photos
Instantly you can tell

Sports were top on their list
Of accomplishments to make
They had to keep their grades up
If sports they were to take

Don’t you love the pictures?
Though faded now with time
Young folks worked together
Created friendships that would bind

Memories are so precious here
That will forever last
So fun it is to view and enjoy
School photos from the past!

A Poem From The Past

Both Poets and Writers of the past
Had a tendency to come from a privelaged class
Who used their education to write magnificent prose
They used old familly money
To publish to the gentry

In a time
When the common working man
Whos heart was full of rhyme
Held them all inside
A prisoner of his time
Now all his thoughts
Are 6 feet under ground
And for that simple reason, the greatest poets never been found
So for those of education
And snobbery abound
One day your thoughts and words
Will be burried underground

No Future In The Past

I lie here tonight in the darkness
Ive never felt so alone
Tomorrow Ill wake up still lonesome
cause things havent changed since youve gone
You walked out with angry words spoken
Youre leavin cut right to the bone
Ill pick up the pieces you have broken
Find the strength to go on
I still remember
How my love once held her
How long do old memories last
Why cant I forget it
Why cant I admit it
There aint no future in the past
I still remember
How my love once held her
How long do old memories last
Why cant I forget it
Why cant I admit it
There aint no future in the past

Friend From The Past

thoughts come pouring,
you opened another side of me,
made me remember the past,
something that was painful to do,
as time passes by,
i keep hidden,
how much i'm falling for you,
if you knew me well enough,
you know it too,
that i don't say what's on my mind,
it been my weak point before,
you had a change of heart,
before i was able to say something,
but it was my fault too,
i pushed you away,
by saying things i knew hurt,
to protect myself from the things,
i know you wanted,
now we have a second chance,
to be more than friends,
will it finally come for us?

Regretting The Past

Everyday I wonder if the choices I made were right
Reliving those times in my memories
Over and over until I doubt my reasons why

Nothing can stop me from going in the future
Or change what I'll do that very second in the present
My choices can not even take me back to the past

I never understand why everything doesn't change when it happens
Allowing me another chance to correct my mistakes
Without looking back into the past that I sometimes will despise

Though I can't change how things happen in my life
Why is it hard to change what I have already done
Reliving the day and changing the future

Regrets of the Past.

Do you know what happens when you regret the past?
Your body system goes haywire and eats up your inside fast.
The choice is, you can end up with alzheimer's or cancer,
Do you think it is worth to entertain the past any longer?

Live for the today & be grateful for everything, I mean EVERYTHING,
Because you have only the now for your entertaining.
The past is gone, the future is not here yet, hope you learned from it,
If not, it will repeat again until you learn it's benefit.

However, when you learned a lot in life and see the result,
By putting the puzzle together becoming humble & really an adult.
Life will be light, happy, peaceful & with respect to all,
Going through time in contentment, solving your lessons & you'll never fall.

A Photo from the Past

“A photo from the past
I dreamt of returning home
Where for long time ago
I made a small house
Of green grass and broken woods.
I dreamt of returning to my childhood.
When there were no responsibilities
No worries, no fears of failure probabilities.
I dreamt of returning to my childhood,
When there were no extra loads.
Actually I returned
through a smiling child photo
through a moment from the past I borrowed.
The child ran far away
With her small hands she waves goodbye
She refused for only one moment to stay
Neither my world is hers nor the day.
I am not blaming her
As she is back to her time
And I am still in mine
So none of us can live in the other’s time.
And I wake up from my dream
On the smiling child in the photo
On the moment that for transient moment
I borrowed.
