I am a Product of My Past

I have seen what war has done
the vision entered through my eyes
touched my heart
I felt pain for those who were maimed and killed

I have heard the words of hatred
they entered cruelly into my being
burning my ears as they passed through
I felt sorry for the ignorance

I failed to stand up
to put an end to the harassment
of another
how low this made me feel

All that I had seen, heard and done
made me stop and think

Who was I becoming

Each person I met
was shaping me
steering me along
along my life's path

I was a product of my past
it made me who I was
there was no way
I could change that past

But learning from it

I could affect my future
