First Thing First - Poem by Akhtar Jawad
First thing first, and what's that first thing,
Other than learning, is there anything!
Learn more and more as knowledge is power,
Step by step, it's a beacon tower,
Clean your souls, it's a bath of knowledge,
Be proud of school when you move to a college.
First thing first, and what after it,
Respect your teachers, don't be a misfit,
Cooperate and love your lovely class mates,
It's love and respect that makes your fates,
With hands in hands and a pleasant smile,
Plow the fields of learning fertile.
First thing first but I can't overrule,
Oh colorful flowers! At the moment an ovule!
Your games your plays and celebrations,
Your innocent naughts are your elevations,
Your teachers know how to keep moderate,
And how to make your future and fate.
(A message of a grandfather on the grandparents day at school)
