What the Future Said

By Aditi Bhandari

Aditi BhandariLast night, the future came up to me and said,
Come, look inside of me
So I left my bed,
To go see what would come to be.

As I looked out of the future’s train,
I must’ve banged my head
Cuz I saw a path of sorrow and pain,
A path which I would tread.

As I looked beyond the future’s towers,
Watching with wonder and awe
Cuz I saw happiness shower down on me,
Like dainty, vibrant, flowers.

Then I saw a figure I have seen, yet did not know,
Through my visions of joy and strife
It appeared to be my friend, but also my foe,
And it was the future who whispered, “Meet my friend, Life.”
