I Pledge This Day

sam2

I pledge this day to do my best
To put the past behind me
Walking straight with head held high
So fortune’ favor finds me.
 
Yesterday is gone and done
Tomorrow lies before me
I will not let myself be bound
By history’s faded story.
 
No longer looking toward the past
Except for lessons learned
I’m moving toward the future now
And all that I have earned.

So Mote It Be.
