The Future

By Sarina Patel, Jr. Assistant Editor

 

The future
The boundaries not pushed
The forks in the roads unexplored
We fear the unknown
What we have no control over
In our organized, scheduled little lives
I hold in my hands
A small grain of soil
A fraction of all that represents Earth
In her typical green and blue entity
When life is cloaked in invisibility
And the earmuffs and soundproof walls can’t muffle your dreams
And your thoughts are the unspoken words, in their silent screams,
You…wonder…
If this is how it’s going to be.
You wonder if the future is little more than a two-sided mirror
Reflecting the past and present, the now and the before,
Into a prism which refracts the colors of the rainbow into our eyes.
Our chiseled eyes.
They see in black and white
When we full well know there is so much more color
On the electromagnetic spectrum, yes…
Oh, all the colors we have not seen,
All the radio waves we have not heard,
All the ultraviolet light we have not detected.
I wish humankind could grow up and
Accept the coming future.
I hope we can change…and learn from our mistakes.
I hope humans can tolerate the brightness…
The brightness of the 30,000 shades of
Red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple.
The 30,000 colors of the rainbow.
There is a ray of hope in humanity
