Ciara On Her Twentieth Birthday

Ciara On Her Twentieth Birthday
A Poem by Rev. Stephen B. Henry PhD.

 
When you were a baby small,
Before you learned to talk,
Everything was so hard then.
You couldn’t even walk.
 
Then you were a little girl
And stumbled on your knee.
How you cried, “It hurts me so,
Stung like a bumble bee!”
 
You grew up and went to school
And practiced many things.
You learned to count, studied math,
And cabbages and kings.
 
Friends you made, the hearts you broke,
As you moved through the grades,
With gentle smile and sometimes
Words sharp as any blades.
 
Inner peace, your faith you found
To help you take a stand.
For what trials come your way,
An angel holds your hand.
 
Teen years are behind you now
The twenties to unfold
Now it gets much easier
But still you must be bold.
 
For challenges lurk ahead
Others have also faced.
Do your best; it’s all you can;
Enough to earn your place.
