The Future

Photo by Markus Spiske

The future
will never be
as we envisage it.
That fact is a given
a constant
by which we will fall
if we do not recognise
its truth
and act accordingly.


and aspiration
may well prop up
the present,
but they
are not the answer
to that ultimate question –

‘What does the future
hold in store

for me?
for us?’

  1. A nice post Roland, it struck a chord with me in the midst of my own current reflective posts. The associated image is very apt, people thinking their future is the responsibility of someone else …… sums up the current times!

  2. Dream, but don’t make dreams our master’ – paraphrasing Rudyard Kipling.
    Thinking on your wise poem it occurs to me that no one really knows what the future holds
    in store. Yet we dream and plan forward.
