In the future I want to be dreaming of the past,
I want to be remembering the good times and the bad-
my muse’, my family, the friends that I have amassed.

In the future I want to be able to look back and see the cipher to my choices,
I want to be able to put a name to the face of my life’s impressions, echoes, and voices.

In the future I want to be able to look at myself in the mirror,
I want to be able to look into my own eyes, and ask myself:
did you grow beyond the confines of your garden,
or did you only blossom for a single season, and then you withered?

In the future I want to be on the crest of a wave of pure
and intoxicating inspiration,
I want to embrace my heroes, young and old- and make their influence the basis and the core of my life’s vocation.
