How must I carry on with life
When those that brought me in are out of sight
I look outside and see life will bring strife
How much more do I have to fight

To leave one’s son alone to the world
I know they meant this not
However my heart is left whirled
Into what is a knot

Can I make it in this world alone
With upmost confidence with myself, will I be alright
As long as my heart choses not to be blown
By the wind, I shall fight with my might

Leaving my footsteps for generations to come
Just like mother and father would have done
