Favorite Quote:
"A day without laughter is a day wasted" -Charlie Chaplin

The gauntlet has been given
It’s time to take your stance
It’s time for you only
Your last and final chance

To prove yourself worthy
Of a life filled with delight
First you must pass through
The heavy duties with your might

The reign may be tough
It always is said to be
But you are one I know will make it
Throughout life’s journey

Look the future in the eyes
Flash at any person a smile
Just be ready to endure
Those hardships for a while

The pain may be much
But the rewards will be more
Through all the bad things in life
The good you will more adore

And if the time comes
When you are down on your knees
Just wait for a moment
It’s best to have patience to please

The crowning ceremony
Only takes place when you are ready
No one else chooses the date
That you will keep steady

And though many decisions will pass
Without even coming to mind
This you will always remember
For it’s one of a kind

Those first few steps of a baby
Or even its first few words
Will compare highly to this
For it reveals your adulthood

What am I talking about
This thing we all need
The ability to do what’s right
Responsibility indeed
