A CHILD’S REQUEST

I am created by God.
My needs are food, clothes, shelter, love and care.
But education is the most important necessity.
No one can snatch this right from me.

It is a universal right,
Always to fight for.
I have to know my creator in order to know myself.
I have to commit mistakes to know the truth.

I have to become narrow-minded to know broad-mindedness.
Thrashing and scolding won’t work,
But knowing my individual differences can build me.
If I fail, don’t beat me.

I WANT TO LIVE

Understand me and my problems.
When I lose sight of my path, don’t become angry.
Make me understand what the truest path is.
Make my education a joyful experience.

Make me sleep with brave deeds.
Teach me about life,
But never to hate it.
Do make me a human being.
