Marching Order

Hello March,

I received a marching order from you today,

Asking me to March forward,

No waiting, no loitering, no looking back at what may have been, or what I could have done better in the past.

The instructions are quite simple, just March forward.

Soldier on, the past is gone. It's now a new beginning.

As a good soldier, I have to obey.

So I March forward, with intent and purpose, for I have received a marching Order.
