Poem for Zoe

Spread your wings and dig in with your boots
The world of your truth is the best tasting of fruits
It takes a while, there is no rush to style
the weird strangeness of youth is a gift
trial your way through what you feel is true
lifting up different rocks
be curious and don’t stop questioning
There is always more than one way to be learning

Welcome to the planet
Welcome home to your family who loves you dear
and it’s clear, that this love will grow with each year
in every birthday, anniversary and change
some things stay the same
