    Never say what you will and will not do
    Never say you understand when you really haven't a clue
    Never say "I love you" when it's not a fact
    Never hurt someone and expect them not to hurt you back
    Never lie to a child or ignore their fears
    Never hold back joy
    Never hold back tears
    Never deny yourself what you need inside
    Never run from a challenge
    Never look for places to hide
    Never pass an old person without saying hello
    Never stop learning
    Never think you're too smart to learn and grow
    Never hold a lover's hand if you think you must
    Never share your emotions with those you don't trust
    Never make real love unless it will last
    Never have sex that's too quick and too fast
    Never ignore the stars at night
    Never ignore a bird in flight
    Never let something good pass you by
    Never say to yourself "If only I would have tried"
    Never look in the mirror and dislike what you see
    Never say to anyone else "It's all about me"
    Never think you are alone
    Never think the race is done
    Never play with someone's emotions just for fun
    Never fall short of doing all you can do
    Never think for one minute God doesn't love you

    Be strong my brother

    These are poetic words indeed, but the message behind them, to always do what you know, deep down, is right. Such sage words of wisdom.
