By thinking differently
a new beginning can be found.
A new level of understanding.
A new way to treat a past that left unhealed scars.
By offering the past as a tool of how life can go wrong.
Then realizing how leaving it behind can help discover
a new path towards beauty and possibilities.
By learning that past injustices can eventually be overcome
with words of support, encouragement and hope.
Because hope is what allows us to move ahead
or we stay trapped in the past, drowning in our pain.
By believing that events in life are the teachers of the future.
That taking the steps to reach out and share our experiences with
others will give us the opportunity to find our true paths.
As well as our own new beginnings.
