My Hope Is In You


Rise and shine.
Rise above the barriers.
Rise above conspiracy.
Rise, my hope is in you.

I hope for a better day,
Tomorrow...
I hope for a great weather,
Tomoroww...
I hope for joy and success,
Your success.
My hope is in you.
My hope is in you.

I hope peer pressure
Won't mislead you..
I hope you understand,
Fun doesn't mean, ,
VIOLENCE, RISK and DANGEROUS!

I hope you live up,
Not to my expectations,
But to your possible opportunities.

Just be a kid, , ,
And i'll be a caring parent.
Just listen, , ,
And i'll inspire you.

My hope for this country
Is in you.
For you are the future
Of the nation.

Choose education,
Choose alcohol and drug
Free life.
Choose success not sorrow.
Because my hope is in you.
My hope is in you.

Be robust and intrepid,
Be courageous and considerate,
Be wise and focus on your
Future because,
My hope is in you.
