A Poem by Huggy Bear

To sum up about being worried and going through doubt

Worried about tomorrow
I forget all about today
Afraid to face the common fate
Yet i still walk with my head held high

Don't know if I'll ever make through
Do not know if I will be what I wanna be
Looking at the future just so scared  of what I see

there are those who crave the future, then there are those who dread it.
it's bittersweet, I suppose.

When we look too much at the future, we forget the beauty of the present moment. Out of touch with the present moment. Though it is good to have a sense of the future (because as humans we are blessed/cursed with the gift of future-sight), we still need to appreciate the now-ness. Oops. Ranted.

The only thing I would suggest is to adjust the last line. It sounds a little rushed like it's said in one breath. Maybe add a comma or an ellipsis after the "future" to slow it down a little.

Otherwise, very nice. Loved the meaning of the last line. As a student, I do feel that fear that I don't want to look ahead because of what will happen. But we have to face reality eventually...Beautifully simple and direct.

I have four children. My second daughter had return home with her baby. Her brother too. World is hard. I tell them stay as long as needed to gather your life. They are worried about their future also. World is changing as we must have a safe place to rest. Poem speaks the truth. We must stand tall and not fear the world.
A excellent poem.

"Worried about tomorrow
I forget all about today"

How true my friend. We tend to miss what's going on today by worry and doubt about the future, but really today is really all we have.

There is a saying "Stop to smell the daisies" one of my favorites, but not always easy to do.

well done as always. Fear is an emotion that is so powerful and many cannot handle. To know fear and understand it is to know everything. It is why, fear is a puzzle to me! Thanks for sharing!!
