Dear Mom, Dear Dad,

There’s something I should say.

Living my life, feeling sad,

Now its a brave new day.


Never understood,

though now I do.

You both did the best you could,

and my life’s no longer blue.


No manual for instruction.

We do the best we can.

You taught me to function.

No longer a boy, but a man.


Dear son of mine,

there’s something I should say.

It’s not always fun,but when its done,

today is a brand new day.





I take creative writing and painting at AIMS.
I like it.
