the poem as
an MP3 file. Alpha List
|Goodbye, adolescence! Hello, adulthood!
Rest assured, I'm on my merry way!
A boy is crossing over into manhood,
Destined to arrive this very day!
Unveil the future, O Ye Gods of Glory,
And fill me in on what my prospects are!
Take me to the meaning of my story,
In which I hope to be a brilliant star!
One chance is all I get. It's starting now.
Now let me be all will and fate allow.
