Mindy, one of our awesome Customer Service Reps, shared this Dr. Seuss classic as her favorite poem for Poem In Your Pocket Day.  We love the realistic, but inspirational tone it takes.

It’s amazing how such simple verses can mean so much, what poem has given you wings?  Share with us in the comments!

OH, THE PLACES YOU’LL GO!
Dr. Seuss

Congratulations!
Today is your day.
You’re off to Great Places!
You’re off and away!

“You have brains in your head.
You have feet in your shoes.
You can steer yourself
Any direction you choose.
You’re on your own. And
you know what you know.
And YOU are the guy who’ll decide where to go.

You’ll get mixed up,
of course, as you
already know.
ou’ll get mixed up
with many strange birds
as you go.
So be sure when you step
Step with care and great
tact and remember that…

…Life’s A Great
Balancing Act.

And will you succeed?
Yes! You will, indeed!
(98 and ¾ percent guaranteed.)

KID, YOU’LL MOVE
MOUNTAINS!
