To the Future

If you are my future you should know
when I was 5 years old I thought I
would be a doctor or when I was 12 years old
I thought I would be a psychologist.
You remember how I expected my birthday
to be celebrated but it wasn’t and how
I wanted to stay in California and have
a bike. You knew how I would look when
I grew up and how I had to have
glasses and braces and sometime feel
awkward. You also know that if I could
ever turn you into a person that I
would make you into an old friend who really
cares. You remember that I felt horrible
and glum when I first got to this school.
You always knew that I could someday
write and paint, love balloons and
darts. You know the questions I would like
to ask you. You even know in five years
I’ll be in college painting and drawing,
studying psychology and medicine.
