To Millie, now that you’re One,

The year is 1 A.M.,

after Millius,

and a new empire is forming.

Ready for a long and fruitful career on top.

The first inauguration speech will have words

whispered as you

(somewhat awkwardly) walk to

“mama” and “da… dad….daddy”.

Your lego is the foundation

of your kingdom so build wisely, recklessly

and meaningfully.

This can be what you want it to be

so use your play phone and form relationships,

fall in love with whoever and let them make you

a playdough pizza (contradict the gender norms).

Be the greatest exporter of laughter

and fuel nations in need of a shoulder.

You’re the leader of this story so

when you learn to write

you’ll make the history.

-Alex W.
