Stop and think before you act,
so your body doesn’t do something,
your mind will regret.
Understand if you want to be understood,
because listening is the beginning
to opening up your world.
Courtesy opens the door to cooperation,
so if you want to get things done,
start with a salutation.
Choices have a positive and negative consequence,
so make the right decisions
and be proud of your competence.
Education is the key to a productive life,
it will give you more opportunity
and you will have much less strife.
Strive to be responsible all of the time,
and in every situation;
let your light shine.
Show respect to each and everyone,
because you want to be treated
as part of the solution.
