Climb up a sycamore tree
And slide down a real fire pole
Go to the gym every evening
Be a feminist
(but still wear high heels)
Write your name ten times on a leaf
(in invisible ink)
Read Romeo and Juliet by the seaside
And DC comics on top of a mountain
Travel around the world in a hot air balloon
Shave all your hair and pretend to be the king
Run for President
Ride a horse wearing a princess dress
(while singing at the top of your lungs)

Jump out of a moving car
(or onto a moving train)
Wear heavy eyeliner to class
And a bikini to the prom
Laugh.
Dye your hair like the rainbow
Drink two ounces of soda before dancing in the pub
Write a love letter to your secret crush
Come home at two the morning of your final exams
Fill your apartment with clothes and shoes
Ride a unicorn
Eat nothing but beef for a week

But never ever try to write a poem
