A Gallant Bride

Tomorrow’s history makers
Future record breakers
Are the infants of this day
They should be taught well
In order to lead the way

They should be taken forward
In the fear of God 
By the responsible one’s above them
Ye parents, guardians and lecture givers
Train them to keep of boozing 
Instruct them never to go logger heads

Improve their knowledge of moral uprightness
So as not to make their regime
Bite the just

Our guardians of later days
Subtract yourselves from the disguised devils
Less they turn you into a bag of disgust
Make yourself confident in yourself
And keep a cold shoulder 
Of relying on them
Or at last you become failure’s hosts

Disembark from the plane of the unjust
And board the plane of the just
Desist from hitting below the belt
And permit fairplay to rule
For it is a praise worthy value

Let the truth prevail in all you do
Let your attitude be reflected in your records
So as to be known as an accountable man
And a scrupulously honest woman
Always be on the level
So that they would be your face saver
When the doubting Thomas talks

Deprive yourself from going against the rules 
Even when you fail 
But move on gallantly 
Till you win the race 
Lend a helping hand 
To those who lose 
When you win

Cease to get satisfied 
With where you are 
Escape from the clutches of laziness
For it hinders your success
Put your best foot forward 
And work as if your whole life depends on it

Don’t mask yourself from your responsibility
Express love and care to your mother land
Show her all the beauty
She possess inside her
Give her the strength of pride 
To be a gallant bride.
