Poetry for Children

I Choose

Listen to Andrew read his poem ...
I choose to be happy,
I choose to be glad.
I choose to have peace
when I want to be mad.

I choose to be gentle,
I choose to be kind.
I choose to allow
good thoughts in my mind.

I choose to have fun,
to laugh and to play.
I choose to be happy
and have a great day.
