For what it’s worth: it’s never too late or, in my case, too early to be whoever you want to be. There’s no time limit, stop whenever you want. You can change or stay the same, there are no rules to this thing. We can make the best or the worst of it. I hope you make the best of it. And I hope you see things that startle you. I hope you feel things you never felt before. I hope you meet people with a different point of view. I hope you live a life you’re proud of. If you find that you’re not, I hope you have the strength to start all over again.

I'm not ashamed to be from Missouri,
Even if it is often associated with misery.
I stick to my roots,
From my baseball caps straight to my boots.
There's nothing stronger than my Cardinal pride;
So much that I'll admit that I've cried.
If I'm caught daydreaming, you know I'm wishing,
Right now I'd rather be fishing.
In the summertime, you'd find me by the lake,
Hoping that I wouldn't bake.
Then on hot and humid summer nights,
I'd pray that I didn't get any bug bites.
If you grew up there, you know that summer's got mold
And winter is just plain cold.
Though that's got nothing on a farm;
They are all full of charm.
I'll admit though, the best part is screaming the name of the home team at the Friday night football game.
