for Oliver

your parents may never tell you

but your first three days

you were nameless

you were all at once,

a missionary’s man,

a pensive philosopher,

a great warrior,

the founder of an empire.

in those three days

your fate was yours alone

your destiny unknown

i still believe

you are made for greatness

  1. This is really, really awesome! I’m sure Oliver will love reading this one day. Methinks he’s lucky to have a cousin like you. ^_^
