The Future











The future appears quite clear once it has become the past

But before the details crisply emerge

They swirl in a murky fog

Fear has a grip on me

Tightening its grasp until it steals my breath

Afraid of the unknown, failure and success

Of getting what I want

Or possibly not

Tell me it will be ok

That things will turn out alright

Even if it won’t

I need to have something to believe

Tell me you are here

That I’m not alone

Cause when you are near

I’m ok
