A PRE-TEEN / TEENAGER’S CREED

It’s not enough to have a dream
Unless I will pursue it-

It’s not enough to know what’s right
Unless I’m strong and do it-

It’s not enough to join the crowd
To be acknowledged or accepted-

I must be true to my ideals
Even if I’m excluded or rejected-

It’s not enough to know the truth
I must also learn to live it-

It’s not enough to reach for love
Yes, I must be willing to give it-
