Things My Mother Told Me

When I was a child

my mother would say,

“you’re free to be wild,

now go run and play.

be happy and hopeful

wherever you go.

Don’t forget a notebook

when you hit the road!

Always look up,

stretch your arms to the sky.

Pour from your cup

but know when to say bye.

Lead with your heart

but still think with your head.

Your life is your art

and the books you have read.”
