You'll need a backpack to Carry your doubts and fears. You need them, but don't be Afraid to lighten the load if they Start to weigh you down. You'll need to lace your hair with Hope like a ribbon and Never let it fray. You'll need to pin a compass to your shirt So you will never forget to follow Your North and no one else's. You'll need to hold a seed in your hand So you'll always remember your roots. And wear a crown of flowers To bring peace to your ravenous mind. You'll need steel-toed boots for your travels Because God knows the road ahead is long and rocky. You'll need band aids for when you trip, But not to worry, dear, It happens to the very best of us.
And if you ever get scared Remember the flashlight in your pocket And it will light your way.
