Future

FUTURE
noun
a period of time following the moment of speaking or writing; time regarded as still to come.
"we plan on getting married in the near future"

adjective
at a later time; going or likely to happen or exist.
"the needs of future generations"

What will happen to me?
What will happen to them?
Tell me ghost of Christmas present
what will happen to Tiny Tim?

Seconds becoming minutes
Minutes turn into hours
Days, months, years are all ahead
In this future of ours

Of things to come
Of intention we mean
Time yet to waste
We plan and plot and scheme 

But what future can we look forward to
Racing towards us fast
This world is set for self destruction
Unless we learn the lesson of the past

We can all live in the utopia
Built by our won fair hands
Start by living the life you want
Rather than the media’s out of tune band

But remember you cannot change everything
Residing under this sun
So sit up, straight back, start taking notice
The revolution stars in the mind of just one

REVOLUTION
noun
a forcible overthrow of a government, ideology or social order, in favour of a new system.
“I started to think differently, I had a revolution of my own mind.”

Love this poem. My only worry would be that the final stanza encourages us to "sit up, straight back" but you mentioned Tiny Tim earlier and he's a little cripple and can't manage such fancy sitting positions ;-)
