Today’s poem is another marker in time. Let’s get started in 3… 2… 1!Ambition is tricky, and trade-offs are hard. Decisions difficult, consequences far. My future awaits me. It beckons me there. But I am too much in the present to care. Or sometimes I am even stuck in the past. Thinking I could righten all wrongs at last.
One of my kids just graduated, so I've ben thinking about /his/ future quite a bit. Like most parents, I'm excited to see where he goes in life. In my case, I'm closer to retirement than anything, and have been thinking about what that looks like. I know what I'd be retiring from, but wonder what I'll be retiring to.
Great poem. I’m at a point in my life when my future is staring at me every day, tempting me. I’m still developing, and work will force me to move to another city next year, and afterwards I’ll get more independence as a legal professional. I know it will happen, which makes the present feel even more temporary than usual. Exciting, but a little scary too, just like the future should be!
Brilliant, Punit - I really enjoyed this! As for my own future, I think it excites and terrifies me in equal measure. Or perhaps the scales are landing slightly heavier on the 'terrified' side....! 🤔
So, I feel a sorely curious about my future :)
This poem is right in the feels man. Would be going into an existential spiral now..but what a beautiful set of words to put relatable emotions on paper. Thanks a lot for sharing!
