Our past, Present and Future
Jenette Nelson

Our past is the stage upon which we walk
It colors every thing we do
The way we think and talk.

Our present is but a moment
That we have caught in time.
Without our past and future,
It has no pattern, no reason, nor no rhyme.

Our future is but a dream about a better day
When our past and present will be merged
And our grief and sorrows will be cast away.

A time when the blinders
Will fall helpless from our eyes
Once more we’ll see the spirits of our past
Once more their presence will be fully realized.

A time when the people of this earth
Will live in peace and love
Finally we will be governed by
Laws from God above.

The spirits of our past are here
Among us on this special day
They listen as we speak and play
And guide us on our way
They love that we remember
They wish for us the best
They re glad to be a part of us
They pray that we’ll be blessed.

Soon our present will be our past
And our future will be real
It will be what we have built today
That will be our stage of steele.
