That Day When Charles Talked to Professor X

Date: Now

Dearest Future Self,

I want you. Yes, I want you now.

If only I could reach you,
I know I'd be forever glad.

If only I could touch you,
and explore you,
I'd be whole.

If only I could get to know more about you,
I would surely love it.

But I must not stop waiting.
I must not stop reaching.
Because only through persistence,
real hardwork,
limitless patience,
and unceasing desire,
will I be certain
that that day would come
when you'll finally be,
not only reachable,
or touchable
or real and tangible,
but ultimately,

Sincerely and perpetually yours,
Your Old Self
