Sitting by the briar
Lost in dreams of days past
Nothing but the fire
Of truth surfaces reality

What is found in living
For the dreams of yesterday
Fruits and flowers giving
The seed that has already fallen

Kneeling by the thorns
Living for the moment
Only the dead mourns
For the life of yesterday

Wave Yesterday away
Put on the rodes of Today
Come out and play
With what you have been given

Lying by the roses
Thinking in the future
Many a question poses
As what to behold

Go beyond your limit
Carry the light of tomorrow
Nothing shall dim it
The world is forever yours
