My Rights Go Hand In Hand with My Responsibilities

My rights go hand in hand with my responsibilities
My rights to having a perfect childhood
My responsibility to being a good child
A brighter and an excellent way to my adulthood
As a child it is not acceptable to be wild
My rights go hand in hand with my responsibilities
This is marvelous for my future
This is good for my future.

My rights go hand in hand with my responsibilities
My rights to quality education
My responsibility to study
A brighter future for our generation
This can be achieved by everybody
If we let our rights go hand in hand with our responsibilities
This is superb for our future
This is good for our future.

    Balance is always the key in life, without it the scales tip too much either way and upset the nature of behaving responsibly. Children need to be able to discover, explore, experience life in order to appreciate and become responsible adults with open minds, able to grasp logic and reason. Combining imagination with intellect will foster wisdom in it's purest form, I believe. Great message, you achieved your goal! ! Thank you for sharing, RoseAnn (Report) Reply

    Yes freedom goes hand in hand with responsibilities, but it is also good to be carefree when your young to experience a life lived within your own imagination!

The hour yet bears for thee and me

If still our heaven be lit above.
