Someone took the time to write
To you to ask a question
They sent an e-mail so I’d like
To make you this suggestion:

Reply

Someone sent a text and is
Awaiting your response
Do not wait ‘till later and
Treat it with nonchalance

Reply

Some archaic soul decided
To send in the mail
An old fashioned printed letter
And wants to hear your tale

Reply

Someone left a message on
Your answering machine
They wouldn’t waste their breath if they
Knew you’d just wipe it clean

Reply

Someone took the time to tweet
Or post to say “well done”
Show some gratitude ‘cause when
You’re silent you show none

Someone posted this here rhyme
In hopes it would inspire
Think about what you have read
And if you do admire:

Dear Miro (age 15)

20 Dec

Dear Miro (age 15)

Hi there, Miro, how are you?
It’s me in twenty years
I thought I’d take a moment to
Send you my thoughts and cheers

Never fret, I’m not here to
Attempt to set you straight
I know at your young age how much
Advice does irritate

I wanted just to let you know
You will end up okay
There is no need to worry ‘cause
You will endure the fray

Every single challenge that
You will be forced to face
Will be survived and each time it
Will help build up your grace

I will not try to convince you
That problems should be met
With vigor and with gratitude
Instead of angst and fret

In time you will see for yourself
As you see your strength build
You’ll come to recognize those tests
As ways to feel fulfilled

Maintain your courage and your faith
And don’t forget respect
Pay no mind to what they say
And keep your ego checked

Never let the selfishness
And cruelty of one
Cause you to condemn the rest
And a new person shun

Keep in mind your enemies
Are just cowardly friends
Who have not yet found their courage
To go against the trends

Continue to say “I love you”
To all your family
You know that even though sometimes
You may not all agree

The ones who share your blood will always
Be there by your side
Your gratitude and love for them
Is something you can’t hide

And do not fret when you get hurt
By those who break your heart
You know full well that good things don’t
Have the easiest start

And if I may offer just one
Tiny bit of advice:
When you meet a tall brunette
Who’s beautiful and nice

Put a ring on her finger
The next chance that you get
It is without a doubt the smartest
Thing that you’ve done yet

Good luck, young warrior
