A Father's Wish For His Children - Poem by Martino Fortuin

Dream then, as dream you will
Play too, as play is your art
Learn well and be great
No better time than now to start

Be all that you can
Live not only for yourself but other
Share the little you have
Remember though, to always honour your mother

Be sure to make time for yourself
Riches come not only from wealth
Choose right and wrong as religion
Live well and cherish your health

Hold onto your happiness
Live without hate
Heed the words of elders
Beware haste...when you choose a mate

Be as one with nature
Be sure to travel
Step out with confidence
And watch yourself unravel
