|Let them grow into tolerance and freedom...|
|...teaching them to strive to be great heroes, |
yet in a non-violent way...
|...to spare loved ones too sudden a farewell...|
|...not to experience want and/or suffering for what they will call|
"a higher cause"...
|...for which a higher prize may be paid.|
|Neither let them become too passive...|
|...leaving them helpless on their own.|
|May our boys grow into sensitive gentlemen...|
|...unafraid of recognizing that they have feelings...|
|... and our girls, into dynamic ladies...|
|...unafraid of making a stand.|
|Neither gender shall clip the other's wings.|
|Equality will bring the best out of everyone.|
|The great ones should not merely revel and celebrate|
their own success...
|...but rather care for the plight of the little ones in need.|
|As for the other little ones,|
don't let the passions of the other great ones
deprive them of their innocence.
|Show them the way with the Light of Reason.|
|For they are our hopes.|
|Yet do not leave Reason completely unchecked,|
lest too bright a light should spawn monsters.
|Only if all these conditions are fulfilled,|
should we break away from our legacy of
intolerance, violence, and helplessness...
|...on a new and better daybreak...|
|...full of light, love, and life.|
