Left behind!!



As Life goes on we find our place
But carrying extra is such a waste
Theres certain things we leave behind
Maybe family or friends at the time
Cause some can't go in our direction
And if we allow them we lose protection
These people we know can pull us down
Acting mature but fooling around
Our drive for success tends to clash
Into a pool of confusion so we splash
So a time to focus on what is true
Whats for me may not be for you
Follow the heart leave'em behind
And peace will follow you everytime
Negative thinking we really dont need
But Positive thoughts are good to read
