Making Your Own Choices - Poem by Daya Nandan

Do not be a slave but be the master of your destiny,
Do not be ruled, courage and handwork is the key,
Do not let your parents force a career for your life,
Do not let them force you pick a husband or a wife,

Be independent, make all your life choices well,
Do not live the choices of others just to face another hell,
Be yourself and let all the choices you make be your own,
Be confident and brave, have the courage to make it alone,

Be a self sufficient adult, be ready to work and learn,
Be ready to fight as the fire within you begins to burn,
Seek advice and do research, take calculative risks too,
Embrace the outcome as you learn things you never knew,

This life is yours, it is not your parents life to live,
It is your time and youth, you must chose what to achieve,
Fear not the discouraging thoughts of both fear and doubt,
Be independent for that is what adulthood is all about,

Topic(s) of this poem: challenges, lifestyle
