"It'll be solved over time, don't worry about it."


"I can't wait for the future, I want a jetpack!"

"Yeah me too, and a flying car!"


"Medical research shows that in thirty years, the

lifeexpectancy will increase to two hundred."


"We hope to begin a lunar colony by 2040."


"I can't wait for the future . . . future . . . future."


"Why is it that we can't wait for the future?

That we waist our lives waiting for something better?

Why is it that when you're in school you want to get out . . .

But when graduation nears you become afraid?

Everything is about to change.

Friends, that you love seeing their smiles everyday,

Will disapear.

Why do we want the future?

All I see is pain.

Friends leaving, a depression nearing . . . and war.

War is inevitable . . . because no one learns from the past.

We look forward and refuse to look back . . .

That is why our ancestor's mistakes have been repeated,

Over thousands of years.


I hate change,

That is why the future scares me.

I am afraid to let go,

And let people live their lives.

I am selfish,

But I know my life will be different without them.

I am afraid of what is to come.

I am afraid of the secrets,

That the future will reveal.
