Behind rests the journey taken thus far,
A truly predetermined onwards direction.
Paths trodden by previous history makers,
Footsteps impress upon latter possibilities.
Choice is simply to placate one’s own mind,
Determining benefits gained from deviation.
Errors of change make and mould personality,
The harder trek demands energies of strength.
Experiences perch above the backwards gaze,
Influenced and affected but now unchangeable.
The unrevealed future holds a nervous interest,
Meticulous preparation still encounters surprise.
The left of rightness leads towards a central point,
Individuality gradually draws itself towards finality.
