I stare into the eyes of the future

February 10, 2008
I stare into the eyes of the future but don't see beyond today
The blank expression on its face tells me I must stay
However being the way I am makes me wonder why
Why must I stay?
Why is this, the place?
Why is my future unclear?
I know now that the choices I have made led me here
And it is now I must face the truth
That there is no wide eyed future

we never know the future, just how we got to the present. i've been trying to express that in a poem forever, but i'll just give up now, because this was so great i just can't beat it. Great poem!!!

i understand what you mean. like why is this where i must be? why cant i know my destiny? but then at the same time, it sounds really unfinished. like these are just your thoughts, not a real poem. you know?

I love the risk you took
I admire those who dare to let the reader get a glimpse through their eyes

I think that this poem really tells alot because no one really knows what the future is really coming for and no one knows why life is the way it is. I think that this poem really speaks the truth...
