Do Not Look Back

Go ahead, leave your home but don’t look back
It’s all you know becoming what you knew.
Don’t get scared; just keep putting on an act.
Look to the sky, see the sun shining through?
You are everything you want and still more.
Do what you please, have fun, make a mistake.
You can never guess what is in store.
That’s all it is about, some give and take.
Don’t let anyone take away your shine.
Things sure can get rough, things can seem broken,
But keep that shine in those beautiful eyes.
Those simple words often left half spoken.
Say what you need, don’t hold any of it back.
Keep on moving forward, do not lose track.
