One Chance

Through the years as you get old,
There will be many things you must be told.
Life only gives you one chance.
Fight for your beliefs, take a stance.
Day by day strive to make someone smile.
Such a small gesture can last for a while.
Do something adventurous, wild and crazy.
Work hard and push yourself, never be lazy.
Let each road take you the way you want to go.
Make your own decisions, say yes or say no.
Always give more than you take.
Experience achievements, learn from a mistake.
Despite your flaws, no matter what you do.
Remember there’s someone out there who will always love you.
