Your history is yours and belongs to no other
Its beginning is begotten of your father and mother
The path that ensues from your first step
Will be a long journey with burdens and rest
To write your own history depends on no other
Your success not penned by father or mother
Do not forget God who guides your conquests
He also will shelter when life is depressed
Enjoy writing your history that depends on you
No eraser is craved when God sees you through
