A Poem by Cherrie Palmer

You will,

find joys without end,

and discover,

dreams only get better with time.

You will

make mistakes,

 some will crest a smile, while others will blur the eyes.

You will

look back to find,

 fears of the past are now a badge of honor,

And with eager feet, you will discover tomorrow.

Passions will bloom and wisdom will blossom,

 and the man you will become will always remember.

I hope it's true Jacob. I hope wisdom writes it's own inscription. I hope wrinkles mean you once smiled a lot or laughed out loud or found a reason to understand....thanks brother for this one....dana

Agreed. A sum total of all the mistakes made, lessons learned and fears transcended is what an individual is.

:) Diamond thank you so very much.
Wisdom comes with age, which I must admit was wasted on me when I was young.
Now that I'm wise I can blame my young self for all the dumb things he got up to.
It's a cruel world growing up to be wise, but I'm getting there.

Thank you so much
Good advice, based on the old adage that what doesn't kill you makes you stronger. Thus is it with all mistakes.
