I Am Living Now In The Future

I am living now in the future
And I Don't know
What will the future brings for me
I keep wondering about that
Every single day
And sometimes I think about my future

As the Future Takes Over the Past

What is the past,
but the past
And the present,
but the present?
It is the future that
one must focus on.
Release your past
let it roll off your shoulders
yet in the end if crying
is what you need to do,
then cry release
your sadness
release your
problems
Grasp the future
with both hands
and don't let go.
Feel the future
change you
and allow the change
to come as the future
takes over
the past

Don't Try to Use Logic

Let's set aside our differences,
Of opinion.
And together,
Come to this agreement!

No where will I...
Or should I obligate myself,
To have your priorities...
In my head.
Nor hold myself accountable,
For the lack of interest to do so.

No where in my mind...
Can I find,
Justification to feel guilty...
For your display of irresponsibility.
And I recently spent all of five minutes,
Being concerned of giving that too much thought.

Let's set aside our differences,
Of opinion.
And together,
Come to this agreement!

You will,
In the very near future...
No longer accuse me for not being 'there' for you.
And I...
Will not find it necessary,
To wonder where you are when I arrive...
To find you gone.
Doing whatever it was that suits you.
AND with whoever.

And we...
You and I,
Can today agree...
That completing those things I need to do,
To get things done...
Will not anger you.
And while I am doing that,
At the best of my ability...
You will focus all of your attention,
On locating a purpose for your life.
How's that?
Does that sound reasonable enough to you?

'Don't try to use logic on me.
It is a little too late for that!
You're 'always' thinking of yourself!
What do you think I am,
Stupid?

If you don't have time to drive me,
To my job interview.
And wait patiently,
Until I'm done to bring me back home...
Fine!
But say it.
Don't beat around the bush with me.'

Son...
I love you.
But at 45 years old...
Don't you think,
That's YOUR responsibility?
You 'kids' are something else today.

Don't Try to be Me

Don't try to be me
You'll find out that
They're some big shoes to fill
Because you've never been through
What I've been through

Don't try to be me
A person with little formal education
Who can pick up a paper and pen
And write or draw something good

Don't try to be me
Unless you want to go through
All of the operations
I've been through
And all of the doctor
I have to see

You're The Future

Kid's use your mind's
Don't fall behind......
You're the future.
Kids use your minds......
Lets take it one step at a time......
Don't break the rules......
Lets stay in school......
So that ys can,
Have a brighter future......
Kids use your minds......
Don't fall behind......
You're the future.
Knowledge is the power
And the key......
Use it to build a brighter future,
And to make a better world......
Don't give into negativity and
Stay away from drugs lets....
Stay drug free......
Kids use your minds......
Don't fall behind......
You're the future.

Another picture of the future of India

Clad in rags with flat bellies
Faces downcast looking here and there for mercy
Their parents, too, don't earn enough
To meet even their ends
They visit every window of the car
Begging some money to satisfy their hunger
But sometimes they are snubbed
By the owners who are busy in feeding
Their own children with candy, pizza, and burgers
Their mouths and their eyes both are watered
The expressions of deprivation make their lot more pathetic The children are called the future of the country
If this is the Past of the Future
What will the picture be?
A hungry and helpless India
Certainly a horrifying picture.

The future is in your hand

Once there was a little girl living in a village
She wanted to find out what her future would reveal
So she wondered to whom should she ask her future
Finally got the idea that it must be her star

So one starry night she climbed up a steep hill
To become closer to the stars so that she could hail
On reaching the top of the hill she cried out aloud
'Oh, my star, please tell what future holds for me now.'

On hearing the words a little star shone brightly
And with a smile it replied to the girl sweetly
'My girl don't worry about your future too much'
'For it is your own hands in which the future is grasped.'

Why Don't You Just Bring The Pictures

There is something inappropriate,
About that dress you have chosen to wear.

'Why because it is white? '
No!
Because it has a veil.

'Some of your family members missed the wedding.
I just want to show them how I looked.'

I understand.
You understand.
I 'think'.
But
Will they understand?
At a family cookout?
On a beach?
With most of us playing volleyball?

I think they might find you,
Still attached to the ceremony.
Why don't you just bring the pictures.
And
Remember this,
You were the one who volunteered
To do all the cooking.

'OKAY!
I get it.
I didn't want anyone to think,
Our moment
Was not 'their' moment too.'

Honey?
Let's not try to have a family too soon.
With kids and
That kind of thing.
Okay?

'Sure.
Why are you bringing that up now? '

Love Won't Work (If We Don't Try)

Whooooooah
whooooooah yeah
whooooooah...whoooah yeah
I don't know what you do to me
I only know it works
Sometimes you make me feel so good
Sometimes you make me hurt

'cause you give me a reason
For getting up each day
I ain't no poet baby
But I'll say hey

Anywhere you go
I'll be by your side
cause baby love won't work
If we don't try

I don't know what you're doing to me
But I'm leaving it to fate
I'm gonna be with you forever
And baby I can't wait

Our love keeps living baby
While other loves have died
It ain't the destination
It's the ride

And anywhere you go
I'll be by your side
Because baby love won't work
If we don't try

Sometimes we're up
Sometimes we're down
I'll be ok as long as you're around

And girl there's something you've got to know
We'll make it through any storm
If we both don't let go

You gotta know

The Future Song

Life brings on unexpected changes
But we must carry on despite it
Are we gonna try
Are we gonna make it
Why is love so very hard
Why is peace so very far
I cant make it
The future of our space and time
Is not gonna wither and die
The future of our space and time
Is not gonna say goodbye
We cant control all our situations
And we cant console underpriviledged
Nations
So why dont we try
To make more smiling faces
Were so full of disregards
We feel pain within our hearts
I cant take it
The future of our space and time
Is not gonna wither and die
The future of our space and time
Is not gonna say goodbye
So Im calling out
Out to all he races
We cant gain control
Without communication
And we need to learn for future generations
There is a future in our stars
There is beauty that is ours
Were gonna make it
The future of our space and time
Is not gonna wither and die
The future of our space and time
Is not gonna say goodbye

... As The Future Repeats Today

There's no place that still remains
Just deserted space all left in grey
Why did we lose, the knowledge of time?
Is this the price, the hell we pay?
The poisoned fear known to man
is he who try to find his path
The collective force blaming you
"This is day day we split in half"
Thrown to the gallow, forgotten and sore
sworn to be different in what way I can
The sultry taste that is special to me
is the last gleeful glimpse of a bitter man
Down and troubled, in search for better days
Back to the beginning, I'm at the end
All my time, compressed to itching moments
as the future repeats today
So impressed, lost the faith in all I had
Broken down, I'm on my way to be dissolved
The hopes and prays of things to come
I've lost them all with glory
Urgent to aim for that short-lived joy
I see gold in all that lies before me
And so we ignore the beggers cup
Praise your act in the Grand Finale
Teach the unborn the winners sign
a welcome grin to the world Royal

We May Have Great Plans For The Future

We may have great plans for the future but the future seems so far away
And we only can live in the present tomorrow is another day
The future's not ours to look into I once heard a wise woman say
And the sooner the rose comes into bloom the sooner 'twill fade to decay.

You will not find one who doesn't have dreams but dreams of course seldom come true
Still dreams to us all are important we all need a dream to pursue
We all need our dreams to inspire us and those who do not have a dream
Have lost their sense of life direction like a leaf in a rapid flowing stream.

When one hopes for a better tomorrow those sentiments apply to us all
And though the future we cannot look into the past we can readily recall
Of life there is truth in the saying that we must take the good days with the bad
The bright moments of joy and laughter and the dark moments when we feel sad.

We may have great plans for the future for a better tomorrow maybe
But what the future might hold for us is something that we cannot see
We keep on in hope of the good times and we all need our dreams to pursue
And if for me good things don't happen then good things might happen for you.

Who Knows What The Future Will Bring

Tis said of every individual that they can shape their own destiny
Though others will tell you quite differently and with such thinking would not agree
Who knows what will happen tomorrow who knows what your future will bring
Though at present you feel a bit ordinary and none other your praises do sing.

You may try to shape your own destiny without taking circumstance into account
And you may have great plans for the future and to little that too can amount
To if destiny does not point in that direction your destiny and circumstance
Does play a huge part in your future our gift of life came about by chance.

Who knows what will happen tomorrow you may feel sad and tearful today
Tonight you may win first division tattslotto and you can celebrate in a big way
Or tomorrow for you than today little different with your same set of worries and woes
As Shaw once said 'Life's Not Meant To Be Easy' but such is life one must suppose.

Who knows what the future will bring to you despite what some say it does seem to me
That we cannot look into the future such things are beyond us to see
Those things known as circumstance and destiny a huge part in our lives do play
And these two can make us or break us for in our future they have a big say.

Don't try to enter.

Don't try to enter the river, way up north Queensland,

Or you may get a shock, and won't be able to stand;

You may find a snappy enemy, chasing after you,

Mr Crocodile, will get there too quick, you he wants to chew.


Don't try enter the rivers in Africa, or you will be in shock,

Mrs hippopotamus, is waiting on you her teeth will lock;

She wants to protect her young, a daughter or sun,

So to protect your self have ready, a man with a gun.


Don't go enter the water, and don't put your Fingers in,

Where the piranhas are in the waters, your nerves will go thin;

They have teeth like wire cutters, and they won't be kept shut up,

They will chew thru metal easy, and nibble a porcelain cup.


Don't go in the waters at Gladstone, you may stand upon a stone,

If you get stung by a stonefish or sea wasp, you'll need a phone;

These are nasty creatures, have vinegar and metho, it's true,

A sting from these you'll need, get to hospital, quickly, is what to do.


So what to do to protect you, is wear proper gear on your feet,

And stay out of danger areas, these creatures you don't want to meet;

And keep right away from anyother creatures like snakes or a dingo,

They can out beat you, one bite from these, will make one sick too.

Don't go in the sea, near Perth, or at bondi, or you will see,

Nasty great big teeth, those white pointer sharks it'll be;

When the siren goes, get to the sand pretty fast, very quick,

They only need one bite, then they'll make you very sick.

Education: Key to the future!

They say the Word is mightier than the S-word,
So i slice thru the minds of many,
A deadly weapon so i don't use many,
but there is plenty where it came from,
The mind of an educated young fella,
Educated by politics of the world and leaders like Fela,
Proud of my roots like the young pioneers by Kwame Nkrumah,
True ma Roots grew out of struggles so it made me wiser,
and that being darker doesn't make you lesser,
Though it's deeper, the more u fall into the darkness,
The harder for the perceiver, to be perceived as believed
to be a stereotype way before I was conceived in the womb,
of a country that considers my kind as booty-scratchers,
But it don't weigh me down, still walk head high as if i had a crown,
And I do,
Graduated out of high school that they never thought i'd do,
Like Du Bois said, 'Believe in life! Always human beings will live and progress to greater, broader, and fuller life'
So I strive through the strife of life,
Straight heading like i saw a back cracker,
But at ma back i see the struggles of ma catch backwards,
Catch being ma goal like Nelson Mandela fought for,
Freedom of the mind through education but I seek more,
More than I could ever imagine 'cuz Imagination has no bounds,
And Education has no bounds so I'm fat kid when it comes to knowledge,
Ain't tryna be anorexic when enlightment comes around,
Yeah and as I pour this out I pour it for young people to know,
That Education is the only weapon no one can take away no matter what depression hits the globe,
Education is Key, so don't take it LIGHTLY,
Its the key to the future, Grab yours!

This is Africa (Africa is The Future)

Words by EmmaPassions Emesakoru

If we could hold hands firmly and stand strong for one another, There's really no limit or boundary to what we can achieve together. It doesn't matter where you are from: north, south, west or east,
If only we can embrace each other and stop living maliciously like beasts, Then we would come to see how much God's blessed our Motherland
That we've intentionally chosen to annihilate by own hands.
Why kill one another when we didn't like those white strangers do it to us? Don't let religion or languages fool you; let's bear one another's cross.

This is the much talked about mama Africa and we are so black and proud. The cloud above our heads, the farms ploughed and the land is so endowed. We're a uniquely happy and gifted people blessed with a diverse culture, This is our very own Africa and it isn't hard to envision why we are the future. From our reserves of diamonds, platinum, gold, coal, water to crude oil, We've got it all to rise from the ashes of phoenix, so why should we toil? Except for corruption, greed and lawlessness, we suffer no natural disaster. Isn't it high time we counted our blessings and lived as brothers and sisters?

From breathtaking mountains, invigorating waterfalls to our fascinating tradition, Can't we see we are the bane for beautiful Motherland's wanton destruction? Our forefathers' backs didn't suffer from the whiplash of slavery for nothing. Then, why doesn't our painful past and rich history not teach us all something? This is Africa where the scorching sun only tans and beautifies our black skin. Nigeria, Kenya, South Africa, Libya, Ethiopia, unity is all we need to win. Love is all we need to conquer the hatred, famine, genocide and diseases. But how do we begin if the senseless warring and apartheid doesn't cease?

This is Africa, a resource-rich continent, so let's provoke our sleeping giants. We've been blessed beyond our wildest dreams and shouldn't live like ants. If only our overtly shady and bad government can stop accumulating wealth, If only the rebels and militants can give up their arms, we'll rule this earth. This is Africa and we pride our homeland with our cocoa, cotton and coffee. We offer a vast array of natural resources and minerals the world can see. If we can export our cash crops and help others develop from our blessings, Why can't we see the only that stands in Africa's way is our undoing?
