I Look Forward to…

Today I decide to go with the topic of the day ‘What are you looking forward to?’ This is what I’ve come up with based on the same

I sit and stare,
Nothing in particular,
Do I see out there,
For my attention to capture,
I gaze into the air….

I am here,
Filled with so strong a desire,
For many things longed for…..

I let my mind wander,
Away from now and here,
Into the then and there,
To the near and far future,
There I let my mind ponder,
Ponder on things longed for….

I look forward to,
Realization of dreams,
Achievement of hopes,
Fulfillment of  ambitions and desires,
Winning of battles,
Passing of tests,
Overcoming trials,
Completion of projects,
Clearance of debts,
Stability of emotions,
Satisfaction of needs and wants!

I look forward to,
When my present will be my past….
‘then’ being the ‘now’,
‘there’ being the ‘here’,
I look forward to get there,

I am bound to the now,
To today,
In my ‘I look forward to’ musings,
I won’t forget to live today,
I have to delight in it though,
Despite the odds,
As I look forward,
To tomorrow
Believing it will be better,
Believing tomorrow,
Will get me there,
To the place,
That for now,
I can only look forward to…..
