Planning Ahead - Poem by Elizabeth Shield

They say what we've accomplished now,
is all the fruit of all we've wrought
how beautiful it is, they say
ignoring how one-sided this
this vision that they keep declaring
painting a future bright and clear
but what they overlook is fear
and the stress and strain, its wearing
us down, you think, what did I miss
and all of this? we will soon pay,
so dont forget, though they forgot
that each tomorrow starts with now
