Setting My Mind

12/20/2006 | 1262 views | Category: Black Poems | Tags: Inspirational Poem,

    This Day I will accomplish something
If i set my mind to Love, that I will Do
If I set my mind to Dream, that I will Do
If Iset my mind to make This world mine, that I will Do
If i set my mind to make a Differance, that I will Do
If I set my mind to be Great, that I will Do 
  BUT...
If i set my mind to Dissapoint, then my goal shall Perish
If I set my mind to Speak before I think, then my words will Perish
If I set my mind to Destroy the world, then my Life shall Perish
If I set my mind to be Less than I am, Then...
