What Your Country Think Of You

Oh man of little faith!
Why pose in discomfort?
Eating yourself on a sideline
Why waste another annal?
On a lamentation note
Agonizing your rebirth
For having no stem with silver spoon
Is this the path you chose?
Isn't wisdom a free gift?
Why pounce in word?
Dousing in relay
When made with good head
Think man, forban regret
It will do no good
For none is born with wealth
on his own head
Do not belittle self
Neither lose value in the things you already have
Don't misconstrue life
Thinking you are of no use
To mankind
Howbeit many without eyes have foresight
Even them with no legs do liberate
How much more of you
Man oh Man!
Even a whole palas thrive
Why hid your potentials
Above the reach of your guiding angels?
Pushing to the path it corrode
And be of no use to man
Why chose to become
That which you've finally become
It bothers humanity
Being a burden to disparity
Roaming every nook
Seeking for signs in the sky
Begging a fellow man to help
carry your cross
When miracle is made in your home
Do not make mockery of God for creating you thus
For they're many that were born incomplete
But enjoy a full life
Do not make a shadow of yourself
So the mockers will be mocked
Neither wait for the nation
to collapse on your head
Before you can lift her
up your shoulder
Go dig your inner self
Till you found the path
potential is laid
Do wake it from slumber
For a desired growth
Think not only what your
country can do for you
Do also that your country think of you.
