Future Me

Dear Future Me,

Tell me-

How are you doing?

In that big, wide world

That seems so scary now

Tell me-

Have you finally conquered

Your fears

Your insecurities

Tell me-

Are the drums of worry

That keep you up at night,

Still striking a beat?

Tell me-

Did you find someone

To share the pain

And all the beauty

Tell me-

Have you followed your dreams?

Become what you wanted

To be

The future

A letter to a future version from the present. Written for the Poetry Slam Scholarship.
