Youths, be smart!

Youths, make life interesting, occupy your time with reading.
Not with guns and knives, to start a fight,
Nor rum and coke, like it’s a joke.
Breaking the law, disturbing the peace,
Saying, “me nah concern an’ me nah fraid police.”

Disrespecting others, even yourself,
Thinking it’s a good thing and you are doing well.
STOP! Youths! Be Smart,
Stay in school that’s where we start.

Remember we are our nation’s future,
And most importantly we are God’s
wonderful creatures.
