I wrote a letter to the Past
I told him to keep his word and stay away
If Past will let me go maybe my Future will stay
Present and I talk about the Future but she gets carried away
Then Past comes and reminds me Future is never promised today
So I sit and pray that Present doesn't lead me astray
I can't change what was and I can't see what will
But when all is said and done
I'll be stronger if it doesn't kill

This Poems Story

I'm twenty-three years old, and I've been writing short stories and poetry for as long as I can remember. I was very pleased and excited to hear that you (yes you!) would be reading something so dear to me. This poem was written back in 2012 when I was contemplating my teenage "life" decisions. I was in the midst of what ifs when God told me that time was His and I needed not worry of what was to come or what had already happened. He's with us always, in all ways.
