Thank You

One of life's surprises,
amongst all the lessons learned,
is the shock of understanding;
that now we get our turn—
    to start a family,
    make mistakes,
    learn to love,
    accept the aches,
    become responsible,
    mature and age,
    discover the real world,
    and turn the page:
Because life is more than one story,
an entire book of discovering lies awaiting.
Each of us takes our turn, writes a chapter,
thank you mom and dad, for the chance to be writing.
