Tomorrow is ours

Tomorrow is ours

Ripples in the water,
Patterns in the sand,
Echoes on the wind,
Destiny in our hands.
 
Memories in abundance,
Dreams of tomorrow,
Till our nigh summons,
Cast away sorrow.
 
Strength in our pain,
Love in our hearts,
Everything to gain,
Yesterday apart.
 
Everything to live for,
Nothing set in stone,
Our fate is ours and more,
Our life, our path we own.

I re-read this a few times, there's a lot of meaning hidden in each line, each stanza. Beautifully pulled together at the end..

Our fate is ours and more,
Our life, our path we own

The only power we truly have is that of choice! Brilliantly showcased Simon, love it👏🏽👏🏽

Hey SIMON!!.....I REALLY like what you've done here...... from stanza to stanza........ starts with ~

                  Stanza #1 ~ Recognition......of the symbols and patterns in our
                                       Past & our destiny

                  Stanza #2 ~ The Remembering....... where we've come from
                                       Promoting our potential for tomorrow

                   Stanza #3 ~ Solidifying the strength inherent in our collective
                                        Pain & realization of what we might gain

                   Stanza #4 ~ Understanding...... that nothing is set in stone in 
                                       Our collective future..." Our fate is ours.." alone..
