Past to Present

Try to breathe tomorrow in.
Try to exhale today away,
for the future is the hunter,
the past is only prey.

Yes, tomorrow thinks its won.
Its faster on its feet.
Still, it should remember,
you are only what you eat.

Past lives and painful memories,
repressed and left for dead,
pick up the pieces that you want,
sweep the rest under your bed.

No matter how you slice it,
all the pieces play a part,
managing to come together,
creating singular works of art.
