A Foggy Future

  1. Ale Mercado illustration for A Foggy Future

At first, I had it all figured out.
My future, that is.
I knew what courses I wanted to do;
What colleges to attend.

But now, I’m not so sure.
My once bright and clear future
Has become shrouded in fog,
With no clear path of where to go.

I’ve been told by many people
That I should do what they suggest.
And because I knew them well,
I trusted their word and went along with it.

But now that my future is clouded,
I have some time to reflect.
Was the future that was decided for me
the right one, or will I find the future
I’ve been wanting all along,
Within the depths of the
Cloudy fog?

I love to write, draw and take photos. I also enjoy playing video games and watching anime. (I'm a bit of a nerd, hehe). I decided to write this poem for the site, because I was very frustrated about the problems going on in my life and I thought that if I shared my poem, people could relate to it.
