You don’t have to do what everyone else is doing,
You don’t have to go where everyone else is going.
When everyone you know is busy being a follower,
Don’t be afraid to stand up tall and be a leader.
Your friends may be disrespectful or use bad words,
They may even call some of your classmates, nerds.
Play no food-fight with them, but chew your food and swallow,
Because you don’t have to copy their actions or blindly follow.
Don’t be rude or disobedient to your mom or dad,
Even if your brother or sister is being really bad.
If you’re in an argument and the other one wants to fight,
Calm down and walk away, so your example will shine bright.
Always choose to be a leader, even when it is hard,
When protecting the feelings of others, be a great guard.
Never be too scared to stand up as a bold leader,
And only follow Jesus, since He’s the best teacher.
