Dear Future Me,

Dear future me

Will you look back and see

All that we’ve accomplished?

This part of the journey

Coming to an end

The soft caress of sunlight-

Giving me hope

That my life will soon begin, anew

Twists and sharp turns

Branches and leaves

My lack of navigation

Created a mirage

Requiring discipline

To avoid straying

I have my spirit

and the higher power

to thank for-

providing reassurance

and guidance on this path

There's much to look forward to

but dear future me

one thing you can do

is look back on this moment

look back and see

this moment in its entirety

and see the hope

beaming from those rays

look back

watch me grow

and glow

and grasp life

one day at a time.
