That makes sense

In 10 years,
I am married with 4 children
I live in a big house in a quiet neighborhood
I work for a publishing company
And on the side, I am writing my own book

In 10 years,
I am homeless and alone
I have mounting debt that I cannot repay
I am unemployed and desperate for work
I am wishing that my life were over

In 10 years,
I still live with my mother
I am a journalist, but I do not like it very much
My sister still lives here too
I cannot afford to buy my own house or even an apartment

In 10 years,
I am sitting
Pondering, wondering and waiting
To see what could happen to me
10 years later

I thought about where I would be in 10 years after graduating from college and this is what I came up with. Enjoy!
