Where Will The Future Take You?

This has been a crazy busy week for me and Paralina Radio. The show has huge news coming, so stay tuned. It has also been one of those weeks where I am so focused on something, I don't really get around to doing other things. So, I'm sharing a poem with you today!

This poem was written by my mother for my little prince on his 1st birthday. I want to share it with you all because it is so amazing and motivating.

*note: when she refers to "Mac," that is my prince's nickname from her. It is short for McCoy. Mac is also son in Irish*

Mom trying to get him to taste his first icecream- he was a little less than 3 months. (and still adorable and so tiny) She also made and designed that "Little Prince" bib for him!

Where Will Your Future Take You?
By April Mobley

Will you crop your hair or let it grow
Wear a cap like Grandaddy pulled low
May the wind of the Rockies toss your hair
While the smell of lavender fills the air
Songs of the meadow lark grace your ears
And your time on Earth span 200 years
May a Pacific sunset light your eyes
And no one ever hurt you with lies
the aroma of low tide sting your nose
While you stand where swamp grass grows
May exotic cuisine pass over your tongue
And you always take time for fun
The weight of the world find your shoulders
Let it give you power to be bolder
May you stroll arm in arm with your love
And your calloused hands caress a dove
Walk confidently into your future, Mac
And remember never, ever look back

This is just such a beautiful poem and I can never than my mother enough for sharing her beautiful words with the world, her kids, family, and grandkids. Mom, you are amazing and I cannot wait to keep reading more of your poetry. 

I have a few other poems my mother has written for me over the years that she has given me permission to share here.
