Dear Daughter

A free-flowing poem (or letter if you will) to my daughter.

Welcome to this world

A world of many possibilities

Where you can follow your dreams freely

And be whatever you want to be

But, at times, naysayers may put you down

And tell you, “This isn’t possible because <insert reason>”

If that happens, always remember what others think or say doesn’t matter

What matters is what you think and how you define yourself

That will allow you to move forward in life with zest

And enjoy life to its fullest.
