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.
