A Letter To The Youth
You are the future heroes
Of our beloved country.
Pursue your dreams,
Study hard night and day.
My little brothers and sisters,
The prosperity of our country
Always depends in your bright minds.
Fulfill all your dreams and be ready.
The future of the nations
Depends in the palms of your hands.
Be loyal, be honest and be good leaders;
Try not to be corrupt your governments.
You are the hope of the poor people,
Don't disappoint all their dreams.
Don't let money buy your principles in life;
Better to die with honor and dignity in ourselves.
My little brothers and sisters
When you become rich and powerful people,
Don't ever abuse your powers.
Don't hurt the feelings of other people.
Remember, my little friends,
All things you see in this world
Aren't ours and will soon end.
It's better to live with enormous
Respect in ourselves and for others.
