March #SOL16 Day Two
“i did good today i am really trying i really want to talk to you can you help me?”
What does it hold, this future of his?
For my boy who strings sentences together without giving a second thought to punctuation. Who leaps before he looks. Who has a heart the size of the Grand Canyon.
He’s got gifts. Gifts that could change the world. He is affectionately known around school as the Mayor of Central Park.
Will he choose to bestow them in the best way possible?
He cares so much. More than most kids his age. He loves his parents deeply, no matter how little they choose to be in his life.
Will his values shine through in his every day behavior?
He’s a pro at apologizing. He will wrap his arms around you and give you the most heartfelt “I’m sorry” you have ever heard or felt from a boy his age.
Will he choose to avoid the situation that brought him there in the first place?
He’s so smart. Intelligence that goes beyond books and tests. He can take apart and put back together a stapler in record time.
Will he choose to pay attention to the flashing signs that illuminate the fork in the road?
The time is now; taking each day for reflection, for figuring things out.
With guidance, love and time this uncertain future will no longer be ambiguous. I know that I will do everything in my power to see to that.
