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!
