The Future is a Choice

by Y. M. Roger

It’s said we’re slaves to our history,

But  only  if  we  choose  to  be.

Innocence is taught to hate,

Love and trust - they’re innate.

So  turn  your  back  on

What came before,

Start anew –

Don’t keep



Nonet Poetry Contest contest entry



None of us are who came before us - we are now and that's where the future begins. Peace, my FanStory friends. ;)
