Oh, The Places You’ll Go

By, Dr. Suess

I’m afraid that sometimes you’ll play lonely games too.

Games you can’t win, cause you’ll play against you.

All Alone! Whether you like it or not,

Alone you will be something quite a lot.

And when you’re alone. There’ a very good chance

You’ll meet some things that scare you right out of your pants.

There are some, down the road between hither and yon,

That can scare you so much you won’t want to go on.

But on you will go, though the weather be foul,

On you will go, though the Hakken-Kraks howl.

Onward up many a frightening creek,

Though your arms may get sore

And your sneakers may leak.

On and on you will hike.

And I know you’ll hike far

And face up to your problems

Whatever they are.

You’ll get mixed up, of course,

As you already know.

You’ll get mixed up with many strange birds as you go.

So be sure where you step.

Step with care and great tact

And remember that life’s a Great Balancing Act.

Just never forget to be dexterous and deft.

And never mix up your right foot with your left.
