If You Do

Pinch your arm and feel the pain
a broken heart feels much the same
do your best not making a big mistake
you'll feel better sleeping or awake.

Don't say yes when you mean no
never drive fast if the sign says slow
take time each day to smell a rose
try looking forward past your nose.

What you become is entirely up to you
people will judge you on things you do
show kindness to everyone day or night
if you do you will turn out all right.
