You Are A Nation.

 

You are a nation,

You owe them no explanation.

 

You must continue to defy expectations.

You must fly above your perceived limitations.

You must dress like each day’s a special occasion.

You must forget about your past humiliations.

You must weather out your storms and your frustrations.

You must be diligent, dodging bad friends and temptations.

You must stand tall, like a fruitful tree in a withering plantation.

You must remember your worth and all its ramifications.

You must be focused and avoid all the flashy distractions.

You must be yourself, an oasis in the midst of stagnation.

 

After all,

 

You are a nation,

You owe them no explanation.
