The Future is Yours

For my best friend Bill.

A coursing poison—
driving highways of veins,
colliding and killing death,
murdering hopelessness.

A venomous concoction,
a mystical composition
that brings about life,
revitalizes crushed dreams.

mothers, daughters,
brothers, sisters—
love outpouring from the soul.

Fighting each day
against the torrents
of painful side effects.
Medicine bearing the future.

The love from all around
and from up above
pushes experiences forward
into the future, not into the past.

Fear lurks nearby,
clutching our collective heart.
Together we’ve endured
the crashing emotional tides.

The future is here.
The future is forever.
The future is a new beginning.
The future is yours to live.
