Read Poem: Dear Future Me, by Jamila Wardak

Dear future me
Will you look back and see
All that we’ve accomplished?

This part of the journey
Coming to an end
The soft caress of sunlight-
Giving me hope
That my life will soon begin, anew.

Twists and sharp turns
Branches and leaves
My lack of navigation
Created a mirage
Requiring discipline
To avoid straying.

I have my spirit
and the higher power
to thank for-
providing reassurance
and guidance on this path
There’s much to look forward to.

But dear future me
one thing you can do
is look back on this moment

look back and see
this moment in its entirety
and see the hope
beaming from those rays

look back
watch me grow
and glow
and grasp life
one day at a time.
