Prelude - Poem by Steven S. Walsky

Every day that has passed
every thought dreamed
every word spoken
all that was yesterday
is a mere prelude to tomorrow.

All of history
is your past
no one else's.

Not reincarnation
the past is important
not for your having lived it
but as the means to understand
define your place today
and your
destiny tomorrow.
