When Future Is Gone - Poem by Adewale Ajakanri

The past has gone
The Future is waiting
Today is here and
now that matters most

I have grown in tears and laughter
have experienced pains and joy in my lifetime
have let all pains in the past stay behind me
have tried to move on many times
but have failed myself
I stand firm and never loose hope
I thought what the future would speak for me if I don't work harder today for a better tomorrow


if I fail today and watch my future fall apart
then I ain't gonna imagine that the
future I was walking toward could compare anyway to the past that I was leaving
When the Future is gone then a
different stories would be made on me

I am the future
