Gaia's Theme Song!
by Radko Vacek
Age Group: Adult
Firmly on my hips I plant my hands,
Look them straight in the eyes, and take my stand:
What that you say? Too young?
EXCUSE me, but I'll have you know
I am NOT too young! I'm all energized,
Ready to go, all set to surprise
The whole, wide world with what I do!
I am not younger than the age you impose,
Oh no! I'm full of the wonder
Of all the good I do - save an old tree!
Set a suffering Orca free!
And as the years pass, and I become
More like this ancient tree, I shall overcome
Any of these limits you impose,
Then as now, not younger, not older, but bolder
Day by day, even bolder than I am today!
Young? Heck no! I'm BOLD,
Yes BOLDER yet, with every negative word you say!
What's that you add? I'll fail?
For real I'd surely hate to,
But I have to take the chance, the only way
To test what all I can do,
To be all I can be!
Author's Notes: A poem written for the fourteenth Birthday of a daughter of the dearest of friends, made through this site! Quite the activist already she is! We never are too young nor too old to be the change - every day not older but BOLDER!
Author's Location: Toledo, Ohio
