It was on a hot summer evening
A hammock swung from two firm pines
At the countryside in the old town
Cows grazed blithely
The ball of fire in the sky blazed a golden hue
And I stood petrified as I peered into the horizon
Gazing into the future
The unknown future
Distant, yeah, the distant future
And I wondered what lies in that distance
Will it be good?
Will it be bad?
An empty answer stared back at me
I don’t know what the future holds
The words flashed through my eyes
The future will reveal itself
For a moment I paused and took a long deep breath
I looked at the future of my yesterday
The future of my past
Which is my present
Which is my today
And I see content
I know that I’ll find the answers
When the future comes in the near distance
When the future becomes another present
In response to The Daily Prompt – Distant
Peace and Love!
