You think your parents raised you? Think back, who did you get in trouble and down and dirty with? Who pushed you to go that extra mile, conquer your fears?

This is for you, my friends.

You motivate me to do greater things
Things I've never dreamed of doing

Exploring and writing
Getting dirty and dolled up
Finding trouble and new interests
Stuff I've been afraid of doing

All because of you
My miracle working friend

Climbing trees and jumping higher
Being more open and trusting
Playing with bugs and finding quiet places
Even giant walking candy bars

My drive in life
Put in gear by you

Dogs and small mammals
Annoying people and doomed friendships
Significant others and evil troop leaders
We're still working on clowns
