About the Poem

I wrote this for a young friend of mine a long time ago. It's all about doubting yourself.

The Future

Yesterday has come and gone, today is but a fleeting thing.
Tomorrow shines as a beacon with all that the future can bring.

The future's out there and life's road calls you.
As you travel life's highways, to your own self be true.

When doubts assail you at night in the dark,
Search for the answer in your deepest heart.

That small inner voice is one you should heed,
It's the poet in you, answering your need.

So listen carefully dear, and he'll see you through.
Life and the future beckon to you!
