be your name Buxbaum or Bixby or Bray
or Mordecai Ali Van Alenn O'Shea
you're off to Great Places!
Today is your day!
Your mountain is waiting.
So... get on your way!" - Dr. Seuss, "Oh! The Places You'll Go"

Someday, I will look out my back door,
Staring at a tree identical to this;
Home it may make me miss,
But I'll have this, then and evermore.

Someday, I just may
Be married, adopt a child,
Even though today
Those thoughts seem wild.

Someday, I will stand at the end of an isle,
Gazing upon all those smiles,
Knowing how far I've come
To share this day of sun.

Someday, I will have a degree,
An office for children to be heard;
I will help their parents see
The meanings of their words.

Someday, I will not care
About my makeup, my hair;
I'll cut it all off, go without
Refusing to in disarray shout.

Someday, I will leave this town,
Not shedding a tear, nor even a frown;
I'll find a small place,
Maybe see a new face.

Someday, I will leave my school,
Graduate, feeling fulfilled, cool;
The next year missing all of it,
Down to the desks at which I'd sit.

Someday, I will be open,
More outgoing, and maybe then
Have a relationship in high school
With someone, both acting a fool

But Today,
I must say...
I am young,
Still having fun.

I must say...
I have a lot to learn
Before this life is adjourn.

The author's comments:
While gazing at a tree,
I'd had an epiphany:
My life's hopes and dreams,
Bursting at the seems.
