Treasure Island

Forgotten Future


The forgotten future of what should have been.
It's crumbled at our feet,
gone and most certainly dead.
The mournful times I now must face.
Companionship and love without a trace.

A forgotten future that filled me with endless hope.
Now so barren and fruitless it makes me choke.
Forgotten future where did it go?
A nuclear winter with in my black soul.

Broken hearted soul bereft.
I face this forgotten future now with death.
No other way to kill the pain.
In a forgotten future it matters not here anyway.

The forgotten future that was held so dear.
I grabbed and fed for many a year.
It was my life, it was my hope.
Now it hangs me with short rope.

The end is nigh.
I need not fear,
the relief I seek is very near.
Forgotten future now grows dark.
As the memory of me will soon be marked.

poet Rupert Brooke

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
