To all the precious youth living your life in the fast lane
Don't you know youíre following your flesh, to a world of hurt and pain
You no longer do the things, that you know to be right
Instead you rebel against authority, you put up a real good fight
Well it's time you face the truth, now that you're out on your own
But it's hard to tell you anything, because you think youíre grown
You've avoided those who truly love you, because you don't wanna hear truth
Now all innocence is lost and youíve been stripped of your youth
It must be the thing to do, you know, growing up too fast
But did it ever cross your mind that the good times might not last
All I ask is that you stop, and think, about the choices that you make
Itís not just your reputation on the line, your whole life is at stake
Trust me when I tell you, I've been there and done that too
And these words I speak, are said in love, because I want to help you
You see, real love will wait for you, until that special day
And you may not always like everything, a ďreal friendĒ has to say
Watch your associations, you've got so many friends
But will they really be there for you through thick and through thin?
If they take but never add to your life, itís time to let them go
Because everyone is not for you, that you should know
Let wisdom guide you in everything you do, donít turn from sound advice
Save yourself some trouble, thatís one less battle you'll have to fight
Many others have blazed this trail that now sits before you
Theyíve overcome many obstacles, just so you donít have to
So, next time someone says to you, they once stood in your shoes
Listen and learn from their mistakes, youíve got nothing to lose
Donít miss your turn at destiny, by going way too fast
Youíve got a chance to change your course, please donít let it pass
Donít wait, slow your roll now, itís time to put on the brakes
And one day you will see, that ďGrownĒ was well worth the wait.



If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
