So tonight my daughter graduated the eight grade!! It was a lovely and LONG ceremony as the teachers created a poem for each student and read them out-loud. This is my daughter’s poem.
Thinker, believer, giver, leader
a power so great, apply it to be an achiever.
Not afraid to speak your mind,
use your voice for the good of humankind.
a style with impact.
Hair that make a statement,
opinions made of passion.
Rebellious, mischievious, inari fiend,
stand by your beliefs,
cultivate compassion for all beings.
Soft heart, comforting embrace,
shank a man for threatening your space.
Humanitarian, lover of life,
willing to fight for all that you prize.
Go off into the world,
open your eyes.
