Hundreds of thousands years ago,
We live at home perfectly peaceful
Mama was faithful,loyal and obedient,
Papa was a lion in the jungle brave and gallant.

We have traded peacefully 
In the ancient market square
Where great heads collide.

In our home,
We are taught to respect
Elders, when present and absent.
Help them with heavy loads and
Greet them first with gestures.

In our home
We are taught not to point 
Someone or something 
With index finger
Our culture forbids it.

Mama taught us food etiquette, 
Do not talk while eating and 
Never eat with your left hand,
It's unhealthy and life risking
Eat with right, Dispose with left.

Silence, yes silence
Mama taught us also,
Silence has numerous 
Meaning in our land
Silence means viewing 
With wisdom, Maturity..
For what is to be said will be said
And that which is not, will never be said.

We are taught not to display 
Anger in public, For our honour 
And dignity is at stake 
Mama taught us self-control.

Mama taught us morals
The power of I AM SORRY,
Patience,dignity and wisdom.
Is all we need to live in our land 
For we are the children of the soil.
