We are thankful to be here and proud of who we are.
We all love to party hard and live la vida loca.
We never regret what we do.
We live for the moment and not for the past.
We try to imagine today, forget yesterday, and dream about tomorrow.
We take life as it is.
We greet critics with open arms.
Letting our minds and lives wander into prohibited places.
Calling our mistakes only experiments.
Getting sucked in to what the world claims us to be.
And trying to match up to what our parents want us to be.
You were once just like us.
But you forgot the ways of our beings.
That’s why when you read these words.
You just laugh and forget what your hearing..
