Look Forward, My Friend!


Not backward,
Not in the past,
Not in agony,
And not in regret,
Look forward, my friend!

In a world full of cynics,
Individuals regretful of the past and fearful of the future,
Where will you find optimism, hope and peace?
Nowhere but in the present,
And in the present, by looking forward, my friend!

Past is history,
Put it in a dictionary,
Look for a hopeful today and promising tomorrow,
By forgetting all that already happened,
And by waiting to find out what will next happen,
By looking forward, my friend!

Say no to negativity,
Say no to agitated mind and worrisome thoughts,
Accept uncertainty,
Do so by non-resistance, acceptance and surrender,
He who brought you here will sustain you,
Have this firm faith in you,
And live by looking forward, my friend!
