"TO CHILDREN EVERYWHERE" -- DR. JEROME TEELUCKSINGH


THE ONE WHO DROPS NOT LAGS IN THE RACE,
IMAGINES PROBLEMS HE CANNOT FACE.
GOOD DEEDS AND KINDNESS WILL NEVER VANISH WITHOUT A TRACE.
WITH MINDS LOST IN SPACE,
DREAMING OF WORLD OF LOVE, NEVER BOTHERING ABOUT LIFE ABOVE.
AND THERE IN AN ATMOSPHERE OF MISERY AND ACTIONS IMPURE,
THEY MUST CONTINUE TILL THE LAST BEAT AND PAINFULLY ENDURE.

A PREMATURE ENDING OR AN AILMENT WITHOUT CURE,
NEVER A PROPER TREND FOR SURE.
MANY IN THE OBSTACLE RACE RECEIVE NO PRIZE,
BUT THERE’S SURELY NO NEED FOR A WASTED SACRIFICE.
FOR A LIFE STRANGE MIGHT YIELD A SURPRISE
THAT WILL MULTIPLY AND BE MORE THAN SUFFICE.
SO BE IT HOME OR OFFICE,
NEVER WAIT FOR THE FINAL HOUR TO BE NICE.


THE JOURNEY WILL NOT ALWAYS BE BLEAK AND DARK,
SO FOREVER REMEMBER YOUR DESTINY AND LEAVE YOUR MARK.
OTHERS WILL RECALL YOUR ACTIONS WITH A POLITE REMARK.
NEVER FORGET BEADS OF SWEAT ON YOUR BROW. CONSTANTLY TIRED AND TAUT.
BEAR IN MIND GOODLY ADVICE AND MORALS TAUGHT.
FOR MANY A DEED DONE WITHOUT SPARE THOUGHT,
RESULTED IN SADNESS AND NOUGHT.
TRAIN HARD YOU CAREFREE YOUTH
BECAUSE WHEN MUSCLES AGE, SUDDENLY DAWNS THE MOMENT OF TRUTH,
YOU’LL SHINE AMONG THE STUBBORN AND UNCOUTH.
WISELY ALLOCATE STUDY, WORK, AND SLEEP,
NEVER ALLOW FAULTS REMAIN AND PROMISES YOU MUST KEEP.
DECEITFUL ATHLETES REAP TRANSIENT GLORY BEFORE THEY FELL.
DEFIANT LOSERS SOMETIMES RETURN AND TIME WILL SURELY TELL
IF THEY WIN THE RACES AND HANDLE FAME WELL.


NEVER BE IDLE OR THINK OF UNDUE REST,
IF A SITUATION DEMANDS YOUR VERY BEST.
FOR THE TIME HAS COME TO LEAVE THE NEST
AND ENSURE YOUR RESTING PLACE IS BLEST.
THIS RACE SO STRANGE AND DIFFICULT
AND ITS DETOURS CAUSE MANY TO DEFAULT.
AND THOSE WITHOUT GOALS WILL EVENTUALLY HALT,
FORGETTING DREAMS OF BECOMING THE PRIZED SALT.
BUT YOU MUST CONTINUE AND REMEDY INNER FAULT.



YOUR LOVE AND ACTIONS WILL BE TREASURED IN A HEAVENLY VAULT,
THUS OTHERS DEPEND ON YOUR ENDURANCE,
FOR GUIDANCE AND ELUSIVE ASSURANCE.
SO BEFORE DREAMING OF THAT MEDAL TO ADORN,
ON BENDED KNEES MUST GIVE THANKS FROM MORN,
TO HIM WHO INFLUENCED WINNERS
AND PUSHES ALONG SLOW, STUMBLING SINNERS.
