Do you remember when you were young?
Bright-eyed and bushy-tailed
Great wall of China length of dreams and hopes
Have you forgotten those times you smiled?
Those times excitement lit up you eyes
As you thought about the great adventures you would have once you’re older
‘I can’t wait to grow up’you said
‘When I’m older, I’ll do this and that and that’ you squealed
‘I will be married by this age’ you proudly proclaimed
What about when you were filled with hope?
That the best is yet to come
And with age comes endless possibilities
I remember it all
And I hope you do too
This is the inner drive to keep you going
The motion needed to keep pressing forward
Find your momentum
Keep your hopes alive
Take it one day at a time
And never forget that your younger self had big plans for you
Don’t let them down
It is not too late
