Treasure Island

Melikhaya Zagagana


Price Of Obedience


Fortunate are those who know their purpose
In life, for they will lead a life of happiness
And honest sophistication, free of blunders

Blessed are those who have an early ear to hear,
For they will follow a principled life with less
Regrets but abundance of success and motivated
Generations and generations and generations

For each day are blessed for obedience
They will yield the interests of nature in their path
For they know the secret to the kingdom of the Lord
They shall eat joy and drink waters of peace and contentment
