Walking up paths once travelled
Feeling like going back in time
Thinking of what’s gone before
Moments, memories of times long ago
The battles that people face along the journey.
Realising that if you keep on going you’ll come
through it so much stronger.
And that the fight wasn’t in vain but used to build
You up for the journey a head.
No experience is ever wasted but used to gain new
As people wander by without a care in the world.
They need to know that their story is
important and that they are loved.
No matter what they may be facing.
That what has gone before is still relevant today.
Because there are many things we can learn from the past.
Hopefully this will help to create a better tomorrow for everyone.
