As I experience life I have begun to realize
The person I once was I no-longer re

I shield outdated beliefs, an illusion created
For the child I once was never once translated

All my fear and concers are based in the past
And I live my life as if in stone it’s cast

If I am not acting, and for others exist
In a play for their sake, what have I missed?

So if I am not, that which I thought
Surely from nothing my life can be brought

For unless my life, born of creativity arises
Then only from the past, my life comprises

So to create my future, in the moment I stand
From nothing I start, and let life expand
