Honesty is a word that is hardly ever spoken Deceit is a word that makes hearts broken Love is a word spoken many, many times Hate is a word that brings out prejudiced crimes Trying is a word actions taken that are confusing Giving-up is a word not or winning but of losing Beginning is a word that means a new start Forever is a word that doesn't play its part Breeze is a word talking about the wind Fresh is a word telling how to begin.

Watch what you choose to do. For instance, someone might want you to smoke. Never forget that I told you -- don't do it. Say no. That can of beer that somebody wants you to try, don't do it. Don't you ever do it. That drug that someone might want you to use, don't touch it. Stay away from it. It can destroy you.

There is no shame in finding someone else to be attractive, or good company. Even if they don't like you, there is still no shame. If you happen to be fond of someone, and they're not fond of you, it's OK.. You don't have to wait and see if they'll love you back. You can announce it.. Joy in life comes from expressing ourselves, in taking risks and jumping in. Everyone is not going to like you. But you can like who you like.
-- Andrew Matthews
