Progress

You walked off of the screen
Left me standing here alone
Unwilling to go forward
Unable to go back

But new times are coming on
And I can’t seem to catch on
I’m unwilling to go forward
Unable to go back

I look at my past life
For my new one’s full of strife
I’m still unwilling to go forward
Unable to go back

I dream of things that could go right
Forgetting if it’s day or night
Unwilling to go forwards
Unable to go back

I see the light ahead
But it’s blocked and ripped to shreds
I’m unable to go forwards
But I’m not longing to go back

I try my best to go
The way that I want to
I’m starting to go forwards
I am only glancing back

The light steadily grows
But it’s farther then I can go
I struggle to push forwards
I have no time to look back

One day I make it there
The sun glitters in my hair
I have made it forwards
I have no need to look back
