Young Woman Stop!



Young woman with so much potential,
Have you forgotten to treat your body in a manner reverential?

In moderation of alcohol you were taught,
But I fear it was all for naught.

Bad decisions and anxieties of life
Are no excuse for such given strife.

Now danger encompasses each drunken state.
An accident, unsolicited advances, and even jail may
be your fate.

Forbid the day you would curse—
Begging God, please my situation reverse.

Wisdom is lurking just around the bend.

Put the bottle down,
Get up and please turn around.


For every sunrise is a new beginning--

Another breath and a new day.

And every morning a chance

to say “I will start a new path—

I will walk a new way.”
