It’s so far away,
don’t stress yourself,
they say.
Go to the beach,
don’t worry about anything,
they say.
That’s in the future,
don’t worry,
the future’s far away.
Fast forward.
What have you been doing?
Why didn’t you think?
Time goes by fast.
That’s in the future,
don’t worry,
they said.
Now the future’s here.
It came faster than you thought.


The author's comments:
It struck me one day, when my friend was absent the week that we had a huge project due, that we don't really think ahead or plan what we're going to do. Sometimes a person makes a huge mistake because they didn't think about how something is going to affect them.

I like this. It's very true and not many people realize it.
