The Future

By Sreeranjini Sureshbabu, Grade 6 – L, Our Own English High School, Sharjah 

Will the future be bright?

Or will it be a bad sight?

Will the next generation have a good time?

Or will life just be a mime?

Will the world flourish?

Or will that just stay a wish?

Will we be able to care for us?

Or will we keep making a fuss?

Are we supposed to die, breaking each other’s heart?

Or die, falling apart?

Are we to live in misery?

Or be fiery?

Will we ever hold hands together and smile?

Or will we keep cursing each other for a while?

Will evil be the one that rules?

And will we be his fools?

Will we ever know the meaning of happiness?

Or will we forever be slaves of sadness?
