The Future

What of the future can be foresee?
There can be no perspective in Mystery
“Tomorrows Creations,” are todays innovations
And yesterdays achievements but a memory.

The future is only a figure of speech
Something intangible, quite out of reach
Explore if you must, the frontier of time
but don’t let your dreams become too sublime.
