    A goal without a plan is just a wish
    And nothing from nothing leaves nothing
    So when you going to begin the task
    And stop sitting on the seat of do nothing
    For we’ve got miles to go before we rest
    And I refuse to settle for less than the best
    I’ll carry you when you’re in times of distress
    But your whole life can not be a failed test
    Up until now I sheltered you from the rain
    But now I need you to see and feel my pain
    Maybe then you’ll see the need to take part
    For the state we are in is breaking my heart
    Independently I’m am uncontrollable force
    Hence united we’d change history’s course
    So please rise up and take your rightful place
    For I need you in order to succeed in this race

    You deliver a spiritual truth/message so eloquently. It's a very lovely piece with wisdom to learn and live by.

    Children are our future, and they need to recognize the greatness of their past to join us to forge ahead. Speak on, poet.
