great poem, with a message of hope.
eyes forward to the fiction of our future.
we all have the power to write a different ending to our story.
i give you the words of ex pistol johnny rotten lydon.
"I wrote my own future. I had to. It was the only way out."
~ John Lydon
but we can also write ourselves a different beginning.
"Nothing changes more constantly than the past;
for the past that influences our lives does not consist of what actually happened,
but of what men believe happened." ~ Gerald White Johnson
so to sum it up... with all 3 tenses.
"Hate comes from the past, fear from the future.
Pain and pleasure are now...
You have to bring the feelings together, blend them,
and step away from time." ~ Steven Barnes
"Who controls the past, controls the future.
Who controls the present controls the past." ~ George Orwell
