The Potential of Each Moment

We hold up our history like a crystal ball
letting our past predict our future.

But what could we do?
Where could we go?
If the potential of each moment
was it’s own?

What would we be capable of
if yesterday’s couldn’t
didn’t automatically become
today’s can’t?

I want this for myself and those around me
The freedom to grow and shine and become
Without the gravity of what was
ever anchoring us in place.
