If you really wanted to laugh; don't just open your mouth like a goldfish; shying tremendously to show your conglomerate of scintillating teeth,
Laugh wholeheartedly with your whole body; whole mind; whole soul, and feel the difference instead.

If you really wanted to cry; don't just make of mockery of emphatically poignant tears; apply pools of crocodile water pretentiously on your rubicund cheeks,
Cry wholeheartedly with your whole body; whole mind; whole soul; and feel the difference instead.

If you really wanted to play; don't just bounce like a timid infant having just opened its eyes into this alien world; bringing in shades of bombastic sophistication in
your stride,
Play wholeheartedly with your whole body; whole mind; whole soul; and feel the difference instead.

If you really wanted to sleep; don't just spuriously place a gruesome eyepatch over your lids; wake up with a jolt at the crack of dawn as the monstrous alarm clock barked stringently into your ears,
Sleep wholeheartedly with your whole body; whole mind; whole soul; and feel the difference instead.

If you really wanted to talk; don't just whisper surreptitiously under your breath; utter your words in a complete mumble jumble which only you could vaguely comprehend,
Talk wholeheartedly with your whole body; whole mind; whole soul; and feel the difference instead.

If you really wanted to stare; don't just stand behind the shriveled curtains; furtively viewing the alluring sights which enchantingly unveiled,
Stare wholeheartedly with your whole body; whole mind; whole soul; and feel the difference instead.

If you really wanted to dance; don't just emulate the movements of celebrities on the big; feel contemptuously embarrassed and sad if you couldn't gyrate as
harmoniously as they did,
Dance wholeheartedly with your whole body; whole mind; whole soul; and feel the difference instead.

If you really wanted to admire somebody; don't just say that umpteenth number of times to yourself; swooning miserably on the ground everytime you encountered the person of your dreams,
Admire wholeheartedly with your whole body; whole mind; whole soul; and feel the difference instead.

If you really wanted to love; don't just say i love you; and run away when the most diminutive of difficulty engulfed you; the acrimonious society estranged you in the whirlpool of rigid convention,
Love wholeheartedly with your whole body; whole mind; whole soul; and feel the difference instead.

If you really wanted to die; don't just make pompous public announcements about the same everyday; standing tall and domineering over the sleazy microphone;
telling the world to wait for the time when you would be leaving for your
heavenly abode,
Die wholeheartedly with your whole body; whole mind; whole soul; and feel the difference instead.

And if you really wanted to lead life; don't just make a nimble effort to slouch from the ground; feeling that beads of fatigue and inexplicable exhaustion were taking their toll on you every second,
Live life wholeheartedly with your whole body; whole mind; whole soul; and feel the difference instead.
