Dream as if you live forever,live as if you die today - James Dean


I look back
And see nothing behind me
Only pairs of footsteps that bitterly stab me

I look back
I simply can't stand it
OH NO NO MORE!
Their time WILL come

I look back
Making it this far
It's a book in the making

And those footsteps behind me
I know are always failing

Because when I look forward
I only see me
in 1st place

And those footsteps behind me
Are STUCK in dead last place

In life there are people who try to bring you down. This poem I wrote is saying don't stoup to their level just look forward and look back only to see that you have made it!
