A Poem For My Children

Life is not a competition to win or lose.

It is a journey.

Your road will lead you where it leads you.

Take your time to


and look around along the way.

Take the side roads from time to time,

but never lose sight

of your destination.

Live without regret.

Laugh without  restraint.

Cry without shame.

Speak kindly.

Love passionately.

Console tenderly.

Most importantly,

never forget,

regardless of the  path you choose,

all roads

begin and end

at home.
