The idea of an ideal future appeals to me greatly. Ideal in the sense that is the best one possible.
Who doesn’t want the best thing possible. Its probable to say perhaps everyone wants the best of all possibilities
But what happens when possibilities seems to be drowned out by inevidibilities
Like government control
Or heart disease
Or a heavy far too humid breeze
Or a mandated hiring freeze
Is disaster inevitable or is the way to circumvent it possible, but ineffable?
Ideal futures are ideally the new present moments. In creating a future a paradox emerges because the only time we have available to create this future with is the present. The now moment.
But the now moment, at first glance, seems anything but ideal.
I deal with back pain
You deal with mourning and loss
The globe deals with war and weather and our intractable failure to finally come together
100 years ago we had a new deal
Now they want to give us a green new deal
So I don’t know what we do from here, I don’t know how to deal, how to feel, how to break the seal on my fear and
Start creating that ideal future that I say I hold so dear
How do we ideally open to new ideas when there is
Such weight to our human disaster
And suffering always comes after
And seems to be coming faster and faster
Our problems won’t be solved with a back room deal or getting an unconstitutional act repealed
Its going to have something more to do with figuring out how to get healed, and then when you are strong picking up your shield
So you can walk, protected onto the battle field
And with nerves steeled and the truth revealed
You show others how to put down their weapons
How to break free from their deceptions
And then, taking a deep breath, you we invite ourselves to a banquet, a feast, a new kind of grand reception.
I’d rather have a party than a war.
Ideally, that could be our future, because that would be a really good deal.
