Don’t place your happiness on a map in a place you’ve yet to be.
Don’t race to be the first, but miss out on all there is to see.
Don’t hide from things that scare you, when fear is just an illusion.
Don’t assume you know what’s coming when you’ve not written the conclusion.
Don’t waste your precious talents for fear of what others think or say.
Don’t wait to live life tomorrow, appreciate and live for today.
Don’t be the one who hears these words as meant for someone else.
In fact, don’t take my word for it ~ just don’t keep it to yourself!
Don’t is a short poem by Ms Moem.
