Before You Act - Poem by Adebayo Tajudeen

Learn to love before you hate
Else you become cynic
Trust before you doubt
Else you become a pessimist
Think before you talk
Else you become foolish

Plan before you act
Else you become stupid
Learn to appreciate before you condemn
Else you become an ingrate
Correct before you scold
Else you become peevish

Endure before you complain
Else you become a nag
Respect before you disregard
Else you become unruly
Learn to restrain before you react
Else you become aggressive

Be receptive before you disapprove
Else you become conservative
Accommodate before you reject
Else you become hostile
Smile before you smirk
Else you become a sadist
