Dear future me
I’m writing this letter in desperation
trying to make some pitch that
hasn’t been made before
all around me are
grownups
who’ve given up on everything
that once gave them hope for tomorrow

Yes we all know
the youth are the future
gonna save us all
such a load of bullshit
another excuse to give up stop fighting
and it’s still your job
to leave your grandkids a better world
to leave them some hope for tomorrow

Please listen to me
I’m young now growing older every hour
and I’m scared to death
of growing up and giving up like them
so if you get this letter
don’t stop trying to make the world better
don’t give up hope for tomorrow

You know the ones
who give me hope
are the elders who keep dreaming
and fighting for a better world
for me to have my kids in
I know it’s hard
but future me know I believe in you
believe in a better tomorrow

Dear future self
I’m writing this letter for my generation
scared shitless by our apathy
we need some inspiration
so quit your job
or start a squat
I promise you will be okay
we can build a better tomorrow today
