Coddiwomple ( after Theodor [Dr] Seuss Geisel )

Oh, The Places You’ll Go!  
Despite what you don’t know!  
Don't worry now -
it's impossible to lose!
 
Hello! Hello!  
It’s time to go – don’t doubt yourself!  
Jump right up and step on out!  
 
You may not know  
which road to trust - but  
Oh, The Places You’ll Go!  
 
You’re Coddiwomple-confused!  
Being so little so long!  
But time has come to choose!  
 
Is “Right” the greater arrow?  
Or “Left” the lesser narrow?!  
Oh, The Places You’ll Go!  
 
Hello! Hello!  
This is what you’ve grown up for,  
A world tour of your very own!  
 
You’re unsure, for sure -  
which way is beautiful!  
You’ll make mistakes, it’s true;  
but experience is the cure!  
 
You’ll stray from either or  
despite which road you choose!  
Stumpling that noggin good and hard  
on your Coddiwompled course!  
 
You’ll surely yell, you’ll surely bellow  
even find it difficult to swallow -  
But here’s a secret you may not know:  
You’ll get back up and carry on!  
 
Left or Right, matters not  
matters not what you bruise!  
It’ll heal right up and you'll learn good  
mistakes will guide future choice!    
 
Hello! Hello!  
This is what you’ve grown up for,  
A world tour of your very own!  
 
Is “Right” the greater arrow?  
Or “Left” the lesser narrow?!  
Oh, The Places You’ll Go!  
 
You’re Coddiwomple-confused!  
Being so little so long!  
But the time has come to choose!  
 
You may not know  
which road to trust, but    
Oh, The Places You’ll Go!  
 
Jump right up and step on out!  
It’s time to go – don’t doubt yourself!  
Hello! Hello!  
 
Don't worry now -  
It's impossible to lose  
despite what you don’t know!    
Oh, The Places You’ll Go!
