In the Future, it Counts

By sometimes, West Windsor, NJ

The future scares me.

I look around and it seems like all the people I know already have their lives planned out. From the moment they step out of this hot brick prison called high school, they have clearly established goals and deadlines. Ambitious we call those people. They’re go-getters. This is supposed to be a superior trait.

So how about the rest of us?

In the summer, I like to lie back in my bed and listen to distant trains speed by. In those trains are people – speeding by without a backwards glance. Those people are high-tech to me. They’re robots. Psychics. With their high evolved cranial structures, they have the superhuman ability to predict the future. What’s even more frightening is their undying thirst for competition.
