A Letter to my Daughter

 As you grow up beautifully and gracefullyKnow that the world revolves blissfullyAnd you are not peculiar but specialSo hold on humbly to your pride and honour in particular Wake up when you shouldThen commit every day to the Lord Jesus as you wouldFrankly tell Him all your supplicationsAnd deviate not from your baptismal obligationsDon’t bother about how the day comesWhat you can give is what countsThink big and think greatThen what you can give shall give you your break You can soar like the eagleAll you need is principle as your girdleYour faith in God as your mantleWhile you believe in yourself to overcome the hurdleDaughters are great and so you areEvery day live nothing less of what you proffer And you’ll have less to think about who you want to beAnd much to put into what you have to giveOpen up your heart to wisdomAnd your mind to sound knowledge that comesBe limited only by what you cannot conceiveBut broaden your horizon cautiously, only just believeStrive to be the best not necessarily the firstBecause a positive mind is the secret of successAnd as you better your bestYou make the world a better place to restGive the bestBecause you deserve the bestAnd remember ‘urhe r’o f’odoỌyę avwọ karodo’
