Looking back to days now gone, now past
Looking to the future, days new, days vast
This NOW, what we perceive it to be
A choice ever held by a you, by a me
Many a decision, ours to reach, to make
From the threads of thought and vision we partake
A mind with purity of purpose, intent and direction
Is itself life's questing perfection
Shaper we are of each yesterday and a tomorrow to come
We with the MAKER, our will as ONE.

In Roman mythology, Janus (or Ianus; "archway") was the
god of gates, doors, doorways, beginnings and endings.
His most prominent remnant in modern culture is his namesake,
the month of January, which begins the new year.
