Take it all in. (18th Birthday Poem)

Take it all in.
Take it one moment at a time.
Find joy in the little moments
of this new year of your life.
For this day is a marker that you are,
in fact, alive.
You have climbed many mountains,
you have made it here alright.
Alright. Not perfect, but alright,
and though you still have a long way to go,
there is so much you have learned
and so many ways you have grown.
And this will be the year
you learn and grow all the more.
May this be a reminder
there is so much more in store.
––Morgan Harper Nichols
