Reality

Think not of me, that, that I might have been,
For I can't live in the past.
Think only of me of what I have yet to be,
Because all it really takes, is a little inspiration
And a smattering of encouragement.
The past is always there, but,
Only a memory of what was.
The future is yet to come.
And as everyone has the potential,
To be whatever they want to be,
There is no-one who cannot achieve their goals,
Whether they be in reality, or only in a dream.
