Within our Nation

Everchanging is this universe, with many twists and different ways;
Sometimes we get up with a burst of energy, sometimes we leave things for better days.

However, we must accept, that everyday is new;
We should make the most of it, for our days on this planet are too few.

A car crash; a fire; become deaf or blind;
Anything could happen, ask yourself, what is left behind.

Have we laid a secure platform for the developing youth?;
Have we lived a life or lies, or have we always told the truth?;

Have we assisted in educating, to give everyone an even chance;
Are all young children happy? Do they still play, and sing, and dance?;

Do we remember our roots? Legends; Ancestors; and Religion?;
Do we consider everything when we make a new decision?

Why are we so focused on old battles that were faught;
Why do we keep forgetting all the new things that are taught?

Children are the leaders of tomorrow, but parents are the leaders of today;
A nation is a family;
Let only true leaders show the way.

Within each young soul lies the desperate need for peace;
No one is born evil, so why can’t the crime rate decrease?:

Let’s all set the example to make the future bright;
It starts with feeding the birds; and praying every night.

A change can only start from within;
That’s the only way that good can win.

Lead through example and show love and care;
Uplift the less fortunate, learn to give and share.

The greatest joy is found in knowing you made a change.
All it takes is a simple, thinking re-arrange.

Let’s use unity to fight the challenges of today.
We can make a difference, if we voice what we have to say.

Let’s use our skills constructively to save our environment; our Earth;
This is the only known planet that maintains both Death and Birth.

Try and prevent others from making simple, yet harmful mistakes;
Pick up that paper on the side of the road, two seconds is all that it takes.

In life there are those who follow, and those; who lead;
There can be a massive ripple effect; from just one small good deed.

We have the power to give knowledge, pass on wisdom and help others to understand;
Unity is the key to peace throughout the land.
