Forget About My Future?

Someone says

Forget about your future

I say

Tell me to forget my future, compel me to quit

The future I imagine gives me an immortal hope

And my future thought connects me to  possibilities

So, I’ll always visit this glorious place in my trance

Bereft of this connection, you know I’d be futile

But someone says

To dream is fair, but in chasing the wind, efforts are lost

Without this moment, your future is a blunt scrap

Future is what you lose when you dream and fret

All you’ve got is now – do all you can in this minute.

Here lies your chance, to seize an amazing future.

I'm a food scientist who has chosen the path of creative writing- the one thing which comes to me naturally.
Back in 2013, my love for teaching young learners propelled me into picking teaching as a career. I taught English, Maths and Science in the United Arab Emirates where I lived for ten years. Right now, I live in Coal City, a beautiful hilly area of my country Nigeria.
My website Fiez-writer is a product of my extreme desire to share my writing with the world. Here, I share fiction, poems, thoughts and writing tips.
A huge part of my life is spent with my lovely family and I'm a proud mother to three brilliant kids.
