Future Talk Obsession

We always talk about the future;
We’re obsessed with it.

We talk things like, “I do this is for my future”
We break people
or things because we can’t see the future of it

That we forget to live the moment
Passing day by day
Hoping soon to jump to the future,
that is sadly unknown

We put so much hope
to a place we’ve never been before
Because we want to believe that
the future is the big moment
like when all things finally fall into places
That somehow
“the future”
fixes everything

Years from now,
Looking back
Would we regret
all those smiles,
flings,
wrong turns,
kindness,
strangers
and possible love
we skip today?

Would we
in the end
eventually obsessed
with the famous
“What if?”
