Let Go

Stop looking back my friend
instead look ahead -
Look forward to the future
and let go of the past.

Let old memories go –
empty your mind and you will see
that with time new ones will grow
your mind a ship at sea.

Look to the future -
and love like it’ll last
Dream like they’ll last forever
a never ending chance.

Look to the future -
and look up at the stars.
For where you are right now,
is just another test.

This world has zero limits
and nothing is stopping you.
Be proud of who you are,
and own those battle scars.

Say no more lies my friend,
no more disguised truths.
For this is a new life
and the only limit is you.

Look only to the future
the world is your crystal ball.
Let go of the past my friend,
and see the world in awe.
