HEY MOM I MADE IT

"...Hey Mom, I made it, hey look at me now.

...Hey Mom I made it, for crying out loud."

 

You had your advocacy wings on,

attached to the floor,

Hey, they did not know what hit them,

When "you" chose to soar...

 

Hey Mom, I'm  thankful for that and the rest,

You made them understand me, when the rest were not at their best.

 

Hey mom, we DID IT, with you at the helm

You moved mountains and built support groups,

and made others not feel alone.

 

Your vision was strong,

And we were a pain

But you never lost sight of what could have been gained.

 

Hey, look Ma, WE DID IT,

TOGETHER at last.

It was tough, but worth it,

and the rest we will wax.

 

We had a vision  and voice

we wanted to share,

and we stopped at nothing,

to make sure others cared.

 

So HEY FOLKS

WE DID IT,

WE DROVE OUR POINT HOME.

The ones that don't get it,

Needs to find another home.

 

We'll keep telling our tale

to all who will hear

So my kids are right when they say,

Mom, WE ARE HERE...

 

Hey look folks, we made it

ASPIRES is the BEST,

A vision and road map,

With the "best" of the "best"

 

So, let's keep telling our tale,

to all that will hear,

And may be "one" day,

All in the world will hear.

 

Hey look folks we made it,

We beat all the odds

Together we are stronger

Together were Odd

 

But whether odd, or just unique

Simply different or sheik

Together we are stronger

And that is the message we send.

 

Hey Folks, we are stronger together that is true,

...but never forget that remarkable You.

 

We might not always agree,

and that is ok,

as long as we are true to ourselves

then all is OK!

 

So here is to ASPIRES may it live long and shine,

May it be different things to all of us,

and make us all SHINE

 

May it continue to grow and make us all proud

and most importantly...

 

(fill in the blanks.  To ASPIRES!  May you all get something out of this

community and share your knowledge with others.)

"We each have our own way of living in the world, together we are like a symphony.
Some are the melody, some are the rhythm, some are the harmony
It all blends together, we are like a symphony, and each part is crucial.
We all contribute to the song of life."
...Sondra Williams

We might not always agree; but TOGETHER we will make a difference.
