Futuristic Qualms

Scare me with the future.
Attempt to scar my mind,
make me fear change,
just like you.

.
When you think
of Earth’s future
you say
inevitable,
obsolete,
heartless,
like the cold metal future
is going to gut me with a knife.
.
Sometimes
when I talk to people
I feel my words
will gut
any good emotions
they may feel towards me,
and my outlook
seems bleak and lonely.
.
But even though sometimes
the initial feelings
may be ones of panic,
the finality of it all
is not certain
or even true.
.
The knife
is not always
descending.
The knife
is not always
a knife.
.
Our future
though uncertain
and panic-inducing,
and possibly
different,
is not destined
to be Terminator:
The Real World.
There is hope for humanity
yet.
