If you fail to prepare... prepare to fail

100 years of being strong
From learning what’s right
And learning what’s wrong
100 years of being proud
Of being heard
And being loud

The songs they sing
The things they do
Will affect both, me
And you

The badges
The patches
And the Journeys too
Teach them new skills
And new things to do

If only everyone else
Was a Girl Scout
Then the whole world
Would work together
And know what being heard is all about

So I was bored and it was a Friday...meaning that it was Girl Scout schooling day. And I wanted to write something but nothing really came to mind. Then I, without noticing, started writing down this poem.

This piece is short and sweet, I love it.  The words are heart felt without being overpowering to the message, nice job!
