Donot be a coward, fearful and weak
Be the last one to quit, and the first one to speak
Donot hide your face from the light of day
Be courageous in life and stay that way
No need to run from your trials, troubles, and problems
Have confidence in your step as you reflect how to solve them
Yet, if you happen to fall, Donot lie there and die
Get up without thought, and hold your head up high
Be wise, courageous, bold and brave
And life will be worth living from your birth to your grave.
