The Important Things

Dear Future me,

I see that your rich and successful or that’s what I want you to be.

Or maybe not, I’m confused and that’s what I’m told to see.


I’ve been disappointed in you a lot and I know that’s not fair.

I just wanted you to be happy, I didn’t care how you got there.


I know you must be tired, I know this isn’t what you expected.

I hope you know there is more to life than achievements collected.


I’m sorry if I bummed you out, I hope you don’t feel harassed.

Just remember what’s important, Sincerely,

-Yourself from the past.
