You’re now thirteen
You’ve arrived at a special age,
Choices and plans, what will you be,
A doctor or a nurse, a teacher or sage?

It’s quite okay if you don’t know,
More important it is, to live each day,
Take each challenge one step at a time,
Learn and enjoy, your work and play

Live each moment, do all things well,
What’s inside you, are things that last
At home, at school, wherever you are,
Thanks be to God you’re growing fast
Welcome to the new world, new beginning,
Strange place
