New Attitude
I look at myself and make a start
feel a purpose spread right through my heart,
problems that were slowly created
now have excuses long outdated.
I will not put it off anymore
I'll turn out the lights and close the door,
look after my fragile piece of earth
I do understand how much it's worth.

I learn from all the expert voices, 
open my mind and make smart choices.
Take the transit or my bicycle,
sun dry my clothes, learn to recycle.
I won't fill the dump with my plastic
just do my part and feel fantastic.
Simplicity forever will be
the best way to thrive and live care free.

Yes, this has a musical sound to it and the rhythm and rhyme are well -used to create an optimistic tone.

Reminds me of the Patti LaBelle song "New Attitude". Not bad at all.
