You’re all grown up? How inconceivable!
We know your story will be unbelievable,
Filled with adventure, pirates, maybe even true love.
Our advice to you comes from that story beloved.
Watch out for the fire swamp, the six-fingered man,
And those ‘R.O.U.S.’es, avoid them if you can.
Always be honorable, be loyal, be kind,
Never bet against Sicilians when death’s on the line.
If the pit of despair invades your personal space,
Seek the miracle man for healing and grace.
If, through eel-infested waters, you must sail–
If, the cliffs of insanity, you must scale,
Just know that your struggles are worth winning the day,
And make friends with the giants you meet on the way.
Be brave and unyielding, be no one’s mere vassal,
Yet, remember, have fun while storming that castle.
From beginning to end, from the start ’til you finish it,
May your path ever be, always ‘as you wish’ it.
By JB Morris- Poems, Prose, and Possibilities- mostly about life, sometimes about God, with brief interludes concerning shoe addiction.
