Start Where You Stand

The past won't help you in the beginning new,
If you have left it all behind at last
Why, that's enough, you're not done with it, you're through;
This is another chapter in the book,
This is another race that you have planned,
Don't give the vanished days a backward look, 
                 Start Where You Stand.

The world won't care aout your old defeats
If you can start anew and win success;
The future is your time, and time is fleet
And there is much of work and strain and stress;
Forget the buried woes and dead despairs,
Here is a brand-new trial right at hand,
The future is for him who does and dares,
                         Start Where You Stand.
