By Josie Whitehead

It's Your Choice

DON’T let others force you

      To do things you really hate.

DON’T listen when they tell you

       That you’ve left things rather late!


DON’T be frightened of the future

        Or be held back by the past.

DON’T dwell on things you didn’t do,

        Look glum and so downcast!


DON’T tell yourself you just cannot

        When you know you really can.

DON’T be afraid to change things

         When you make that future plan.


DON’T dwell on all that’s negative.

      Your future should be bright.

DO go along the path you choose

       You'll know it will be right!
