Be like the sun, always shining,

Be like the trees, selfless,

Be like water, quenching needs,

Be like thunder, strong,

Be like a fruit, sweet,

Be like cotton, patient,

Be like the bees, work hard,

Be like flowers, spread fragrance,

Be like the sky, pleasant,

Be like a lion, brave

Be like the water drops, clean and clear,

Be like the seasons, change for good.

Shaahida Farook, VIII A, Rosary Matriculation Higher Secondary School, Chennai.
