Advice For Kids
by Profeser (writer from Larimer County Jail)
Please be yourself, be kind, be bold
Play Forever, don’t grow old
Pave a path that’s just for you
Try not to lie, just be true
Don’t be afraid of the unknown
Show the world how you have grown
Never regret a single day
Use positive talk, come what may
Seek adventure big or small
Don’t be scared to try then fall
Be daring be brave find true love
Know your angels guide from above
Don’t forget family, they love you so
Be the greatest you, wherever you go
Aim for the stars, outer space
Please leave this world a better place.
