What is our Future?

What is our Future?
In my third year of university, a lot of the time we are asked what we are going to do with our future. It's a strange thing that we have many years of our lives left and yet we don't know what they will be filled with. We have many options and paths that we want to follow, but we'll never know what happens until it is our present. I decided to find a poem on future for this week. Enjoy.



PLANNING BRINGS YOUR FUTURE INTO PRESENT

It isn't enough just to want something.
You've got to ask yourself,
"What am I going to do to get the things that I want."
You're going to need a plan.

Your problem is to bridge the gap which exists
between where you are right now
and the goals that you want to reach.

With a definite, step by step plan, you cannot fail,
because each step will carry you along to the next step, like a track.

All you need is the plan, the road map,
and the courage to press on to your destination.
Knowing where you're going is all you need to get there.

You can't get lost on a straight road.

IF YOU WERE

If you were busy being kind,
Before you knew it you would find
You'd soon forget to think `twas true
That someone was unkind to you.

If you were busy being glad
And cheering people who seem sad,
Although your heart might ache a bit,
You'd soon forget to notice it.

If you were busy being good,
And doing just the best you could,
You'd not have time to blame some man
Who's doing just the best he can.

If you were busy being true
To what you know you ought to do,
You'd be so busy you'd forget
The blunders of the folks you've met.

If you were busy being right,
You'd find yourself too busy quite
To criticize your brother long,
Because he's busy being wrong.
