Lines to a Debutante

"In the Pink" - Makati, 11 July 2015
“In the Pink” – Makati, 11 July 2015

the time

has come

to put

away

the dolls

the toys

the trappings

of halcyon

playtime

and time

to cross

into new

terrain:

to kiss

one’s

lollipop days

farewell

and bid

fair greeting

to life

more serious

more sober

sterner.

 

yet,

young woman,

look ye

to that

far horizon

and know:

there is

a world

beyond

what you

know

there are

realms

to be

discovered

known

considered

taken

ruled.

 

heed these

words:

choose your

path

choose it

well;

let the

divine pilot

steer that

course

and all

shall be

good

and all

will be

well.

 

tread carefully

on your

journey

for it

all

begins here.
