A world of setup obstacles,
programmed in protocols.
Mapped out roads,
stresses a ton loads.
Stand up and conform,
you may be shunned
outside the norm.

Family traditions set,
until a certain age must be met.
Societal laws enforcing,
underworld coercing.
God in the sky,
worship for part of his pie.
Resist we may eventually die,
at the least suffer and cry.

Weapons of choice,
lead off with a strong positive voice.
Draw lines, dare not cross,
let a mature mind be your boss.
Higher power in mind,
may help strengthen the spine.
Good plans to overcome,
checkmate if we

Too serious of a brain,
may bring a mind drain.
Not being serious enough,
watchout we got to be rough.
Life can be overpowering,
some heights over towering.

Choose the best path,
or suffer lifes wrath.
Sometimes correct paths chosen,
may still have us

Grady, I sure hope there will be a better life and home prepared for us. Where our loss will be nothing but gain.

Love, Patty
