Wisdom of the elders
“Know that yesterday is but today's memory
and tomorrow is today's dream....” Jubran Khalil Jubran
The future is yours to live, to grasp to make.
Like the Sun shining on the top of the mountain
So bright, the light is in every one of us.
So drink form the knowledge fountain
You are bound to greatness no matter what you know the path to right
This ride through life leads us into darkness But emerges into light
The course through life is deep and stumpy it knows no peace
It is scornful yet together we can conquer And knowledge we can seize
Those thorns that cut through the deepest of all skins
Yet with time we learn to endure
Knowledge is the key for sure
Steadiness built in your soul just like a spear
Be brave my child there is nothing to fear
For sure the torch of knowledge will keep you warm
IT will protect you from the merciless winter and its harm
Its warmth cools down the eager soul
It puts a meaning to your life and makes you whole
Rise little angel of knowledge and grasp this gift
The gift of learning and heading towards the light makeshift
You shall never go astray as long as you know what you seek
You shall ascend sometimes fail, tremble yet stand again on your feet
You are the master of your own ship yet with knowledge you learn no retreat
