The Future - Poem by Kenneth Maswabi

My eyes can only see now
Immersed together in their blindness
Enveloped by the thin filament of time
Standing between now and later
The mysterious future remains elusive
Concealed by the curtains of time
Keeping future visibility to zero

My eyes yearns for the future
Aroused at the thought of tomorrow
Inspired by the generous clock on the wall
That plough through time with ease
Erasing time in a matter of seconds
Pushing the curtains of time away
Ushering in the future
The future that drops dead in the nick of time
Giving way to the past
In an endless TUG OF WAR

My eyes searches for the future
Within the crevices of time
Layers and layers of seconds removed
Like a needle in a haystack
The future remains elusive
Forever imprisoned by time
In a solitary windowless cell
Called the future
