Joseph L. McCourt Middle School

The Future

The future...what is that?

That is the word you will need to have in your head.

Time goes by pretty quickly,

So you should start thinking about the word future now.

This is where your life starts,

But you never know what will happen tomorrow…

or in five years…

So think about your future and start making plans!
