I have reached the end of long road

I know little about the world beyond my own

I am young but wise in a wonderful sense

I will train and steadily prepare for the next calamity or catastrophe

I will make something of myself for others and myself

I will help those that are in need and ask for nothing in return

I will be loyal to the friends I make through the years

I will be ready to die when the time comes

I will be one of acceptance for the bad, good and the gray

I will help someone greatly with their life before I die

I will see the next cataclysm and come out maybe broken but not destroyed
