What Will It Be Like?

what will it be like
one year from now?
will I even be alive
or will I be underground?

what are we to expect
when life has turned down?
are we asking for an answer
that isn’t even possible?

what will it be like
one year from now?
will people be more equal
or will that be frowned upon?

what are we to expect
when life has turned down?
are we asking the wrong question
that cannot be found?

what will it be like
one year from now?
will there be reason to hope
or will it be even worse?

what are we to expect
when life has turned down?
am I willing to fight harder
even if it leaves me out?

what will it be like
one year from now?
what are we to expect
when life has turned down?
