For all those fools out there...

I'm not sure if anyone has dealt with adults telling you you'll never go anywhere in life...but I have...here's to all those very kind "sirs".  Don't let them get to you.
 
The Fool
Here’s to that “sir,”
that very kind “sir,”
who told me to pursue property,
not happiness,
who called me a fool.
 
Here’s to the girl in the mirror that day,
who made me realize my true wish,
was to stop wishing,
it doesn’t get a fool anywhere.
 
Here’s to that fool,
who was a fool for hoping
who died a little when that kind “sir” spoke,
that fool that’s sick of wishing stars,
and foolishly believes in tomorrow.

True dat bro. I don't beleive I've been called a 'sir' but mabey a 'ma'am.' One of my own family members puts down my dream of being a famous author down as "just a hobby" so I feel you. I try to look ay your other work and feel free to see mine!

You can tell which teachers don't like their job by which ones tells you that adult life is worse than teenage life.
