Look Back

Look Back

Sometimes to move forward, you must look back.

Pause, balance and shift load to keep the train on track.

Easy to drift of into the endless fog of reality.

Letting the ship be steered by the tide of western formality.

Being bred to fit a mould set by those before you.

Daring not to dream to big, to walk the path set by few.

Those inspirational pioneers that let their passion be their guide.

Their souls filled from nature, not letting success bloat their pride.

To follow your dreams sometimes is much harder than first thought.

Whats happened to us now? Corporate capitalism is all that is taught.
