WHAT WE FOUGHT FOR

What you are – is your past: that is true,
But the future will be your past too,
So how you live it is all down to you,
And what scenes you intend to view.
I don’t want to pass on my sorrows,
For then sad will be my tomorrows,
And it would be so vain of me,
For there are others in my life you see.
I can dwell on self or dwell on them,
Who will grow up to be women and men,
Inspired by hope and positive thought,
Not in the past with sorrows caught.
That is the responsibility we all must meet,
Lest what we fought for rots in the street
