The Future: A Sonnet (ABBA ABBA CDC CDC)

What does the future hold somebody asked?
The question is common and queried much.
‘Tis joyful to predict the future’s touch
Perhaps, but no one knows forthcoming tasks.

It’s fun to guess prospective worlds unmasked,
Dreaming of experiences and such.
Imagining things not yet in our clutch.
I will share why this is useless at last.

One can only live in one time and space.
Our present day is all that we have now.
Future’s not here; the past can’t be replayed.

Tomorrow’s not promised, that’s what they say.
Promised tomorrow’s are not given thou.
So, be present for what happens today.
