Remnant's Of The Past
26 August, 2000
author: Rebecca Ditch-Hammack (aka Dreamer)


I'm sitting now looking at what once used to be a peaceful land.
A place where dreams were shared and wishes were grand
Though now it is littered with shrapnel of some strange misunderstood war
This place seems now weird and oddly bizarre

I think of all that was once shared
Happiness and tidings of those that cared
But now things have changed and dragons have appeared
And in the shade of happiness now venom has seared

Some try to look back to the place that once was
Trying to recapture its youth as an old soul does
Sometimes looking back brings on a bitterness of its own
And in the voice of the bitterness is heard a different tone

Maybe it is best to go on from here
Not looking back or ahead in fear
What has happened is now past
And all of the dragons ugliness won't last

As I look to what once was a lovely place
It is the here and now that I have to face
Not the past bitter behind us or futures of alone
But to cleaning up the fields and turning a new stone
