Get It Right

Get It Right

Get it right, there’s no excuse
There is forgiveness, or the noose
Chances we can take don’t end
With consequences, don’t pretend

Some hold back, others on a roll
But trying hard can take its toll
Be sure of what you want to do
And here’s the best part – see it through!

And with the current pressures here
Take my advice and have no fear
Don’t do things just because you’re told
Make choices now, you must be bold

But stay within the safety zone
These words should not leave you alone
The friends and helpers that we need
Are waiting just beyond our greed

And with the doubt that’s daily spun
No wonder things are not begun
Ignore the ones that want to fight
Just hold your course and get it right
