Tags: This, Is, The, Future, Poem

My second poem. A freeform poem about how we should value what we have before it's gone, how some people just want more no matter what and take the present for granted.

People await the future,

Expecting great advancements.

Whether it's science or technology,

They want to see evolution.

But look around you.

The future is here.

Yet we still want more,

When we should be happy.

Is there no satisfaction in devices that respond to our every touch?

Isn't being able to soar through the air enough?

Don't get me wrong: there's no harm in improvement,

Although there is in greed.

Each new advancement brings loads of greatness,

Along with twice as much trouble.

Crime has learned to thrive online,

Our power sources have the potential to end lives.

Whether you realize it or not, this is the future humanity dreamed of years ago.

It may not be exactly how we pictured it,

But this is the future.

A future where we have come so far.

The future many have dreamed of is now the present.

So let's enjoy this and appreciate it.

This is what we wanted, so we need to take advantage of it while we can.

What we have today can very well be gone tomorrow.

Because tomorrow is holding a new future.

And tomorrow is an unpredictable thing.
