If You Don't Like The Record -Change it!

If you hate your job


If you don’t like where you live


If you’re stuck in some kind of groove


If you don’t like the record

-Change it!


If you’re not happy outside

-go inside!

If you don’t like to drive


If you don’t want to be quiet


If you can’t bear to be still

-Shake it!


If your life is going the wrong way


If it’s time to look at things


If things are going too fast


-If it’s time to make a correction

-correct it!


So there’s my recipe for life

-Read it!

If you don’t like the look of it

-Burn it!

If you think it’s a mad idea

-Ignore it!

But if it works for you

-Then do it!

As someone who has made several life-changing decisions, including one which nearly cost me my life, I applaud the content! And I hope you sing it when you perform it :D

Thanks for all your comments guys and gals but I must confess that while this may be great advice . . .I have yet to follow it myself!

I`d like to say Yup!

A mantra I myself aspire to, rather than expecting some other bugger to sort it out for you.

Interesting. Nice use of words and flow to the poem. And yes, done it. Sometimes. But only sometimes.

Sock it to world. Yes! Great theme and well presented. Great choice of title -maybe because it can also be ambiguous.

Would you consider 'Slow down'?

A useful code for getting by! But it takes nerve
to change direction and that isn't always easy.
No wonder so many poems moan about what IS - rather than what COULD BE.
