Future


FUTURE
There is a philosophy
That when you compete you must get a trophy
And if you don’t you are compared to a puppy
I have some mind bulging questions, do we all got to have that money?
No!

The future is bright
That’s another philosophy
Indeed it is bright but the leaders never provide followers light
Gunshot every night
Is this bright, is this right

Tomorrow they say, shall be better
But they forget that “today was yesterday’s tomorrow”
If this is the future then we will live on shield and arrows
Don’t just sit there and watch me talk
They are using your future for pork
And unnecessary expensive cloths

Tomorrow will never be better
If you wait for bread for you have butter
Tomorrow will be better if you strive harder
We are our own tomorrow

We are not alone so look into the sky and dry a tear
Make sure you use love to pass through fear

“These are words my ears attracted when walking pass an old man advising his grandson”

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
