I wish you the best on this day.
Here are few words I don't expect you to follow,
but I sure hope you live your life to the fullest,
and not just follow.
As I write those words,
the world is in trouble.
Financial markets tumbling,
cause of the burst of the bubble.
Some thought the US was the greatest.
How could the empire be brought to its knees?
The Dow took a nosedive,
and Nasdaq started to sneeze.
Now let me tell you the difference between us and them.
Around here they don't let you fail.
Simply because you are born this way.
Whether you are young and strong or old and frail.
We live in a land where failure is not an option.
Neither is success.
Conformity is the rule.
Collective failure is the result. What a mess!
Don't let my words discourage you.
Go on to succeed or even fail.
Always remember to be positive.
In the end you will prevail.
