Face Of The Nation - Poem by Yiro Abari High

Face of the nation
Hope of the nation
Over the years,
Reforming generations

Face of the nation
Must find roots in truths,
Respect what is due
To all humans and to brutes

The face of the nation
Must believe in substance,
Not superstition
Staying firm in its stance

Face of the nation
Must believe that
Money buys a few things,
But esteem buys everything

The face of the nation
Must believe that
A pocket without discipline,
Would never conserve
And enough, it would never have

The face of the nation
Must be taught
The principle of nation-building,
Made to believe it
And disciplined to enforce it


Poet's Notes about The Poem

The face of the nation refers to the Police
