To the children in the family

 

To the children in the family,

To the offspring within the clan,

Each girl and woman, boy and man;

Seek the potential of your mind;

Harvest your dreams and you will find,

That you were chosen to be great,

A charge that you should celebrate.

 

To the children in the family,

To the offspring within the clan,

You can accomplish more, but plan

Your movements toward a worthy goal

And trust your God to guide your soul,

And motivate you to invest

Your energy to be your best.

 

Withstand temptation and refuse

To tolerate a will to lose.

And never act against the prayers

Of kindred folk who's spirits share

A vision that unites the tribe

In power we can not describe.

 

And children always act your age;

Quick to love and tardy with rage.

And work with a ferocity,

Avoiding mediocrity;

Place passion in your work and play;

Let fairness reign throughout your day.

 

To the children in the family,

To the offspring within the clan,

What is visible when you scan

Your hearts, where fertile motives dwell,

A fear to gamble to excel,

Aversion to the risk to lead,

To conquer boredom and succeed?

 

To the children in the family,

To the offspring within the clan,

I know the answer, yes you can

Achieve beyond your current state,

Beyond what critics contemplate;

For you can solve the mystery,

And claim your place in history.

 

To the children in the family,

To the offspring within the clan,

Each girl and woman, boy and man;

Seek the potential of your mind,

Harvest your dreams and you will find,

That you were chosen to be great,

Seize the moment and celebrate.
