In Control
Author: Marilyn A F Longfellow

vinebar

I choose this day,
And from now on.
To take control,
Of my body and soul.
My mind comes first,
Family and school.
No drugs or sex,
Nobody's fool.
Poverty, baby's,
Broken hearts and schemes.
Who needs that?
I have my dreams.
I choose this day,
And from now on.
To honor myself,
And be proud and strong.

IN CONTROL

THANK YOU GLAD U LIKED IT HOPE THE KIDS WILL
USE IT IN THEIR LIFE. WISH SOMEONE WOULD HAVE
GIVEN IT TO ME WHEN I WAS YOUNG...

No kidding

I wish someone talked to me like this, when I was younger. I sure as hell raised my kids to learn from my mistakes....and they have. (I finally did something right!) LOL
