Words Of Wisdom. To my God-daughter Nicole on her 16th Birthday. Happy Birthday, Sweet 16.


Reaching 16 is a milestone,

 a happy point in life.

You've set your personality

 and your tolerance for strife.

By now you know right from wrong

 and how to influence friends.

It’s time to look down the road

at forks and around the bends.

The road ahead is wonderful,

some choices will be clear.

Your path depends on bravery

 to push aside the fear.

When you chose this way or that,

 slow choices or if snappy,

make the choices best for you,

the ones that make you happy.

 

All My Love … Uncle Mike
