I walk my own way,
while my family in fear all pray
for me, that I will not stray
from my pathway, and be lost one day.
The way that I go,
is where I perceive that I may sow
those seeds, I have need to grow
with my love, tenderness, and my hoe.
When strengthened and tall
with maturity, then will I call
upon them, that they may all
fight against sin, and cause it to fall.
