Dear Future Me

Dear future me
I’m writing you this letter
To see if things get* better
And if you found the peace and happiness you sought?

Dear future me
I wonder what you're thinking
Did you ease up on the drinking?
Do you ever give your younger self a thought?

Cause I often think about you
And wonder what the future me will do
Will I live up to my ideals and my plans?
And will all of the men I date be worthless dickhead also-rans?

I’d love to know
If you finished Tristram Shandy
Did the arts degree came in handy
Did you get around to learning the trombone?

Can you tell me
Are they still making Big Brother
Did you apologise to your mother
And did they ever make you pay back your student loan?

I want reassurance from you
That there’s a point to all the stupid things I do
Time goes by too fast
No point living in the past
If it’s okay by you I’d like to live each day…like it’s my last

Dear Future me
Were we bombed by North Korea
Did I get to play Medea?
Did the polar ice caps melt into the sea?

Will there ever be a Lib-Dem leader
Did they dis-arm Al Quaida
Is the point of Linked-In still a mystery?
And is there such a thing as…destiny?

Give me faith in what you'll be
Cause I’ve never really had much faith in me
On your success I’ve placed my bets
And I’m taking each chance that I can get so you’ll have no regrets

Dear Future me
I know that you can’t hear me
Yet somehow you feel near me…

Do I really need to worry
Is it worth the endless hurry?
If I have to change then can you tell me how?

If One Direction don’t get back together
And we have totally screwed up the weather
I guess the only time worth living in…is now
