Poem: Future oh Future!

Future, oh future
Are you finally here?
I seek you next week, next month
Even next yearI strain to find you
As I struggle and search
I am still afraid
You’ll leave me in the lurch

So tell me, oh tell me
What will you be?
Good, bad, or ugly?
What will I see?

Sadly, I get the feeling
I will never find you
With all my scratching, clawing, managing
I’m exhausted, I’m through

“Why, dear child, are you longing to see?
I dwell in each new moment
And you’re looking
Past me”

“Don’t rush me too fast
Don’t hurry me along
It’s in the present
Where you belong”

“You’ll never manage me
Or my hidden ways
Just love in each moment
With each passing day”

“Yet I always return again
As we often meet
You see me constantly
With each heartbeat”

“I appear not in whole
But only in part
The big picture yet to be seen
An amazing work of art!”“The goal is not to find me
But to let me create
A wonderful life for you
I know what’s at stake”

“Like the caterpillar dwells
In the cocoon inside
It’s beauty takes patience
The butterfly takes time”

But what about all the plans
You want me to begin?
Can’t I see a glimpse?
Can’t I peek in?

“Please plan your best
As I fully understand
Opportunity often awaits
Those who have planned”

“But just remember
To live with outstretched hands
Because life is in the moment
Regardless of where you land”
