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


At this moment,

Here and Now.

Let the future take care of


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
