Bajeca's Values Vistas

Your values are the principles you have which control your behavior

"The Train of Life"

Some folks ride the train of life
Looking out the rear,
Watching miles of life roll by
And marking every year.

They sit in sad remembrance
Of wasted days gone by
And curse their life for what it was,
And hang their head and cry.

But, I don't concern myself with that.
I took a different vent.
I look forward to what life holds
And not what has been spent.

So, strap me to the engine,
As securely as I can be.
I want to be out on the front,
To see what I can see.

I want to feel the winds of change
Blowing in my face.
I want to see what life unfolds,
As I move from place to place.

I want to see what's coming up,
Not looking at the past.
Life's too short for yesterdays.
It moves along too fast.

So, if the ride gets bumpy,
While you are looking back,
Go up front and you may find
Your life has jumped the track.

It's all right to remember,
That's part of history.
But, up front's where it's happening.
There's so much mystery.

The enjoyment of living
Is not where we have been.
It's looking ever forward,
To another year and ten.

It's searching all the byways.
Never should you refrain.
For, if you want to live your life,
You gotta drive the train.
