Life Advice

You’re the brightest star
That I’ve ever seen
You don’t listen to what others say,
Even when it’s mean

You don’t let what others do
Ever get you down
And with such a wonderful smile,
It’s hard to see you frown

So stay positive and remember
To always try your best
Because everything you do
Might end up being better than the rest

When you fall,
Just go and get back up.
Because life may not always be easy,
But it’s also not always tough

Stay focused on the future
And don’t dwell on the past;
Just because you got hurt once
Doesn’t mean you’ll always need a cast

Try to make a difference
In the lives of everyone else
You may not always succeed,
But you won’t always fail

Keep trying and never give up,
Even when it seems that life is getting tough.
Push for above and beyond,
Instead of just having enough.

Remember who’s helped you
And who’s pushed you down
And be thankful for every day,
From sunrise to sundown.

Don’t regret your past,
And try to love all that you can
Because life will be over before
You’ve known that it even began

I really like the message you're putting out there. Your poem has a great flow, and the rhyme is nice. Inspirational :)

Could you please read my poem "Deceit" and tell me whether it's any good?
