Poems about the Future

“I like the dreams of the future better than the history of the past. “

- Thomas Jefferson

~

Let us not worry

About the future.

Let us only do the right thing

Today,

At this moment,

Here and Now.

Let the future take care of

Itself.

- Sri Chinmoy

~

The Future

by Rainer Maria Rilke

The future: time’s excuse

to frighten us; too vast

a project, too large a morsel

for the heart’s mouth.

Future, who won’t wait for you?

Everyone is going there.

It suffices you to deepen

the absence that we are.
- Translated by A. Poulin
