I would like you to meet someone.
Say hello to
Future You.

Future You
Smiles and laughs.
They are healthy
And wealthy
In love and joy.

Future You
Can take on the world,
Sings along to every song,
Is right where they belong;
They just wish that
All along,
You knew it would be okay.

Future You
Has so much to say,
About how they got
To be this way;
But the main thing is
‘Thank you’ for
Carrying on
Day after day.

Future You
Has a life,
A love,
A light,
And they say;
‘Trust me,
Everything will be

Future You
Loves themselves
And they
Love you
One day,
You will

What astonishes me is how true this can prove to be.
It seems inspirational poetry comes out best when you pose something (a life-state, in this case) that may sound utterly impossible to fulfill, then introduce a process by which to reach that goal (persevering to the end). You motivate your audience and achieve what you set out for.
When you write, do you have a preferred set to model your work like mentioned above? Or does it come from whatever is on your mind?

A lot of what some other people have already said + You're uplifting vibe is most refreshing on the darker days.

My goodness, I can't begin with this poem.  I am completely in love with it.  I'm coming out of a dark time of my life, and this is just what I needed.  Future Me is the reason I'm carrying on (I'm going to say it right now; I teared up when I saw that part because it reminded me of the song "Carry On Wayward Son" and then tomorrow's Supernatural s9 finale and a;dlfjadls;kjf) for that brighter and happier me. 

Future Me loves me the way I am and I hope that the day I can come to accept myself is a day that is relatively soon.  *begins to blubber all over the keyboard* Oh god, Supernatural feels on top of these feels. Sob Emoticon
