To Look Into the Future

by Brianna G. Harte

A look upon the glowing glass ball

To gaze upon the future, near or far,

And ease a troubled mind

Or frighten one far too bold.

A moment is all it takes

And yet an eternity may pass

Before a wish to truly see

A possible time to come.

Whatever is seen,

Whatever seems carved,

Can be transformed in one act alone.

It takes not the world to fall

For a gloomy future to turn bright,

Though what it will take will be discovered

Whether sought after or chanced upon.

When taking a quick glance,

One must understand such things,

For not everything dark stays in shadows,

And not everything bright illuminates forever.

Perhaps it takes not a magic orb

But just sets of eyes

To unfold what could be

To see what can change

To give one the chance to undo

Before future comes to pass.
