Wisdom of the elders

Keep on going no matter what!
Keep on going no matter what!


“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
