THE FORWARD LOOK

It is in the forward look
that we are saved,
that life’s fullness overtakes us.

We are made to be dreamers,
strivers, imaginers,
hopers.

It is in the vision of the ideal
that we live:
a kingdom that shall come,
a community to be formed,
a promise to be fulfilled.

The horizon shapes present realities:
It is against the future that we may strive
or welcome its promise today.
