Oh Future

That annoyingly difficult place

Where things are not so bad

That you feel like it is worth the effort to make a change

But not so good that you feel that very same change is unnecessary

Oh future, with your guarded secrets

With your demands of effort, patience & soul

What will you show me

How will you change my world

Or will my world always be

A place on the precipice

Walking the delicate balance

Of the place between joy and despair
