Twenty Years Later

Updated on May 28, 2017

I have been writing poetry, fiction and short stories for many years and have completed a book of poems. I also enjoy comedy writing.

20 Years Later
20 Years Later

As I sit here, looking back into the past, living in the present and anticipating the future

Thinking, how will life be twenty years later?

Maybe I will have to say a final goodbye to my dad and mom.

For death is certain for even the pure of heart, inevitable but oh so wrong

The friends I have today, may just be a memory later

Likewise I, but there is no questioning the creator

20 years later, my lush black hair will give way to bald and grey.

Looking out on the deck, watching the passing day.

The passing of time is something common men cannot control.

But when you look at the things we destroy each other for, you realize vanity is worthless, the most precious is our soul.

20 years later, men who think themselves great may seize to be.

Imagine a future where all humans are awaken, now they are really able to see

As I look ahead, I wonder if the rapture will be real.

Will a savior come? Will there be an Angel in the sky, a bird, a plane or the man of steel?


20 Years later, my children would have been fully grown

living life to the fullest, making decisions on their own

Yes, the future may turn me into a grandfather

But I will enjoy every minute of my maturity, wisdom gained, maybe a bit smarter.

20 years later, maybe we will really have peace worldwide

Possible leaders will lead from the heart, and put politics aside

I really wish the future be illuminated for mankind, I really wish it so

But I am merely a man dreaming, not a Seer, speculating what I don't know.

20 years later, maybe things remain the same

But if it is so, that's a God damn shame.

      My goodness, I won't be here...and that's as it should be...change is the one constant of life, so let's hope it continues.

      I agree, what a shame if all remains the same. Hopefully in twenty years we will have peace all over the world, but as long as there is ' Nice And Easy ' my hair will never be gray...Hee...
