The Future is a scary thing
He is a constant presence
Never leaving you alone
Never giving you peace

He dances on the horizon of your vision
Always, always, always there

Sometimes, Future crawls right up to you
And you realize how terrifying he truly is

He has one eye
One hundred legs
One thousand teeth
And one million questions
About what exactly you intend to do with him

Oddly enough,
The questions are the worst part of all

It's hard for me to sit here and write
As Future whispers in my ear
As he asks me where I am going
What I am doing
What I even want out of this life

And I continually realize that I just don't know

Dear Future,

I can handle how scary you are
How unpredictable and wild you tend to be
These things I accept

But please, please,
Just make the questions stop
At least until I find an answer
Just one of those days where I wonder what the hell I'm doing with my life.

...I think I need to just start a personification folder. xD

Haha very good, LIFE is a bitch and well the future always is bothering us, we all think or thought what were we going to do but we decide to make the first step by giving our decision and the future stop bothering us...

Yes, the future only has as much power as we give it. :)
