THE FUTURE

The way your friends of today
Speak about their friends of yesterday
Is the way they’ll speak about you
To their friends of tomorrow too.

It’s easy to read the future
All you have to do is remember the past
Most things stay true to their nature
The first shall be the last

It’s always pride that leads to the fall
When people peak ‘cause they know it all
The sin that brought an angel down
Beware of it when your heights you crown

Those that swim in every wind
Will fall under the influence of your every whim
But when events keep you far away
Another’s mind will bend them its way

And those that always rise again
Or stand when others fall in pain
No-one can say the reason why
Yet, no matter what, they never leave your side

It’s easy to read the future
If you know how to read the past
Most things stay true to their chosen nature
The first shall be the last

That’s why when an Oak falls
Which long stood undefeated and tall
We feel an odd sadness, vulnerability
Injury upon our sense of stability

It is also the reason why
When a Sinner repents, beyond the Sky
The Angels are moved to their very core
And rejoice like never before…

It’s easy to read the future
Too often it mirrors the past
Yet leave a little room for error
For the human heart is vast.
