When/ If

When/ If
by Christopher Walsh, 4/11/2020-4/19/2020

imagine you see the future you
a later self
to talk to who will be
and be at last relieved
at what you recognize
at what you find familiar
at what you reached
at what works
picture it
the wanted outcome
the eventual you
the eventual yours
the slow slow work of making a future to fit
you want the possible
you hope for the likely
you aim for the certain
you look for the right
you look for the best
you look for the right questions
to shape the answers
you may reach
to find a path
from Could to May to Will to Yes
