Words of Wisdom to the Youth

As tears of strength and courage slip down my face,
I have waited so long for this euphoric embrace.
Through trials and tribulations,
I have kept my head up and marched,
Strived through fearlessly.
Though I walk through the valley of shadows and death,
I shall have no fear.
I know I am meant for more than this.
I strive for perfection,
Which we all know is impossible.
Therefore live life pure and full of bliss.
Be happy,
Take chances,
Fall in love… a few times!
Truly, genuinely learn to appreciate every little thing.
Moments are like shooting stars;
If you don’t keep your head up towards the sky,
You might miss out on the one that will 
change 
your 
life.

    You are a young and beautiful philosopher with real potential for communicating wisdom eloquently - you had the courage to choose this most challenging aspect of Art, hopefully you possess the wherewithal to master philosophical literature - a nice secret is that you are already perfect should you accept it my friend - J.A.B. %

    Thank you so much, I feel that way as well. May not always be positive but I'm not stupid, everyone knows not everything happens the way you want it. things will fall into place when they are meant to. :)

    Makes a whole lot of sense. I respect & appreciate the effort in making sure the youth gets their mind right. We need it now more than ever. :)

    I really appreciate your comments Drake. This piece was written and dedicated to a group of high school students (16-18 yr olds I'm 21 not too big of a difference but I have been through a lot for my age so I have been told) I met and became friends with recently, trying to let them know to live their lives to the fullest.
