How do you see the future?
What do you see beyond the passing of time?
What do you imagine will happen going forward,
as time flows endlessly on?
You cannot create a future if you can’t imagine one.
Only when there is determination to move forward
will new standards be revealed.
Innovative ideas and state-of-the-art technologies
can only be conceived through the freedom to imagine,
the strength to hope, and the boldness to achieve.
The future is a gift from the present,
and is only given to those who pursue it.
Let’s aspire to a wondrous future,
creating its image for all to see.
And never stop imagining how the future
of our world may appear.
