To clean

To clean

In the midst of orphans
I sit
Like I
We are asked
What our mummies
Taught us

Some say
To love, to have faith, to believe
Others say
To follow their dreams, to be themselves,
To do good

To clean
To always clean
My heart
And leave it spotless
Love, faith, good
Kindness, honesty, obedience

And my mind
For thought
Thought for others
Other than my self

And strength
Strength to believe, to follow my dreams,
To be myself always 
For there is no one better.
