(for my kids)
Grab your things! It’s time to go,
forget about hindsight.
Keep breathing, keep smiling, keep moving forward.
Keep that disposition bright!
The path will be obstacle ridden and steep,
And dangerous at night.
You may panic, your voice will crack,
your chest will feel so tight.
But you will meet others along the way,
willing to join the fight.
When you find them, you will know,
and things will just feel right.
They will help you clear the weeds,
and keep your goal in sight.
Walk together and don’t give in
to sadness, anger, fright.
Now that you know where darkness lives
Go there and be the light.
Now you know where darkness lives.
Go there. Be the Light.
