When

When

When hungry, eat your rice,
Tired, close your eyes.
When dirty, have a bath.
When in company, talk words soft and nice.
When idle, relax, read books never seen.
In love, never give all your heart,
Keep some for yourself.
In the garden of life, be the flower,
Be not the weed, bees will not hover around you.
When confused, take a shower.
When sad, cry your heart out.
When you feel like laughing,
Laugh loudly until you are tired.
Listen to yourself sometimes,
Keeping your mouth shut.
Think twice before agreeing to what you listen.
Lead your life as if tomorrow you would die.
Live for the moment and be happy.
