If you stepped back to look at your past,
Tell me, what would you see?
Was it fulfilling, or did you live it too fast?
Won't you be honest with me?

Do you see a contented person
That has met his goal?
Or do you feel overrun,
And life has taken its toll?

Can you say you are pleased
With all the decisions you've made?
Or would you like to back track,
So you could make a trade?


When you see your reflection in the mirror,
Do you hold your head up high?
Are you proud of who you are?
Can you look yourself in the eye?

If you find you aren't all you thought you could be.
The flags go up and you see the wrong signs.
Then start today to make some changes,
While you still have time on your side.

Great message, Eloise! We should all take stock of our lives while there is still time to make the changes we would like to see!
